I take that the wage deferral is in place of a reduction in Salary, therefore those that do take the deferral will in the long term not loose a penny. With the lost income for RFC our finances are still going to take a hit. What may? Just help us out is any players going out for a reasonable transfer fee. A reduction in salary would probably helped us better.
It's a sensible move, announced in a professional manner.
A voluntary pay cut offer from our players and high-earning staff would have been excellent but hey ho.
As for the move to furlough 'normal' employees, I'd say we should all be grateful for the govt assitance. We are far from cash rich and we don't reside in the land og milk and honey that is the EPL. The club are doing the right thing within its means, to apply the 'top up' for the furlough staff.
Cash is king and there's nothing coming in just now.
I tend to look at this a different way. We’re constantly told we’re going bust by them, yet our players obviously have confidence in our ability to survive if they will take a deferment, as they must have assurance they will be paid at the other end.
I see alot of criticism on social media for this decision. i really can’t see the problems here? everyone will need to furlough staff at some point, they players & management are not taking wages for 3 months - 3 months! - so our lower paid staff won’t lose a penny. the players will then get their money when all this blows over. in the end, no-one loses. surely that shows how well our club is being run financially?
