Sweden has been without a national hockey team for over a month and the conflict does not appear to be resolved in the near future.
According to Klara Stenberg at the Sico player union, the Ladies' Crowns have today received back the contract proposal that was sent to the union last week. According to Stenberg, the union wants to make changes to the agreement, which means that the players now do not want to sign.
- I got back the union's response today in the afternoon and we will not write about that from Sico, Stenberg tells SVT Sport.
Stenberg does not want to go into what details it is that have made the noble agreement."More complicated to find a solution"
According to Sico, negotiations have been made more difficult since SDHL stepped in as a party to the issue.
- We have been clear that a national team agreement should be signed between the union and Sico and lately SDHL has also stepped in as a fairly large party in the negotiation, which has made it more complicated to find a solution, Stenberg tells SVT Sport.
Klara Stenberg will have a telephone meeting with the players in Damkronorna tonight to discuss how negotiations should proceed.
SVT Sport is seeking the Swedish Ice Hockey Association's Anders Larsson for a comment.
