The AFLPA is pushing for a pay rise ahead of AFLW 2018

A potential increase to AFLW players’ pay for next season will be discussed following the trade and re-sign period that ends on Friday.
The AFL Players Association has put its position to the league and believes if the number of contract hours is to increase for the AFLW, so should the pay.
AFLW players were contracted for nine hours per week this season, but feedback from players suggests some spent almost double that amount of time preparing for matches.
Last season’s $8500 base wage was calculated pro-rata on an AFL male rookie wage of $29.32 an hour.
The base wage on the current deal will increase from $8500 to $9276 for tier three players, $12,000 to $12,846 for tier two players and from $17,000 to $17,946 for tier one players.
In a day of movement at clubs, AFLW best and fairest Erin Phillips announced she will return to the competition next season.
