Hope Solo: Rapinoe and USWNT team leaders accepted collective bargaining agreement in 2016


Former United States Women’s National Team (USWNT) goalkeeper Hope Solo has criticised Megan Rapinoe for signing a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) and not securing equal pay, something they almost achieved in 2016.

The USWNT have filed a lawsuit against U.S. Soccer, but a federal judge ruled in the latter’s favour over the team’s financial discrimination assertion.

“Megan led the team into signing a less-than-equal collective bargaining agreement (CBA),” Solo said in an interview for BeIN Sports.

“We were so close to achieving equal pay in 2016. It was offered to us, we were about to sign the contract with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

“But Megan Rapinoe and the leaders of that team signed a less-than-equal CBA, which is concerning for the overall class-action suit and the overall fight. But, trust me, we have history on our side, as well as congressmen and women.

“President Joe Biden is going to fight for equal pay. We believed in him four years ago and we believe in him now.”
