The NFL, the NFLPA and the NFL Players Association have been working together on a plan to ensure all players are covered by a minimum of six boat maintenance services a year.
That’s an increase from the six the league is required to provide annually under the collective bargaining agreement.
The plan is a joint effort between the league, the union and the union’s labor representative, the Boat Repair Group.
“This agreement will be the largest and most comprehensive on boat maintenance in the NFL’s history, covering all of the players on both sides of the ball,” said NFLPA President Eric Winston.
“It’s important for us to maintain the integrity of the game in all facets of our lives.
This is the first step to bringing the league’s players and their families together to take ownership of our game and the health and safety of our players, coaches, players and fans.”
The plan will also cover the cost of the following boat maintenance and replacement services:The Boat Repair group has been tasked with identifying and providing all boat maintenance plans for all teams from the NFL to the NFL.
The team must provide its own plan, which will be evaluated by the Boat Repairer and must include all boat repair services that are required by the league.
The Boat Reporter, the team’s health and wellness coordinator, will be in charge of this responsibility.
“We’ve spent years working with the league to make sure we have the right boat maintenance plan, but it’s still a work in progress,” said Boat Repair Group President and CEO John Gorman.
“I hope this helps the league and the players feel more comfortable about their health and well-being.”
In order to ensure the safety of its players, the league will also provide the BoatReporter with a detailed boat maintenance report.
The league also will provide all team health and medical information to the Boat Reporter.
In addition, the players’ health and welfare office will be able to provide players with updated information on the health status of their body, including a report on the type of medications they’re taking.
“Our players are the leaders of this game and we want them to be well,” said Gorman, who is also the team physician.
“That’s why we’ve worked to ensure that every player gets the proper boat maintenance, and that we are taking steps to make this a standard practice.
It’s just a matter of getting it right for everyone.”
The agreement also will allow teams to hire additional BoatReporters to work with players and monitor their health status.
The number of BoatReporers will increase from six a year to eight, as the number of teams is expected to increase from 16 to 22 over the next five years.
