PJA members to seek strike negotiations?

PJA members are considering unofficial strike action because of the new rules over the whip.

20 October 2011

Members of the Professional Jockeys Association (PJA) are considering unofficial strike action because of new rules over the use of the whip.

The PJA has called on the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) to amend the policies - as many of the sport stars feel they are too strict - and so strike negotiations may be required to prevent protests from taking place.

PJA chief executive Kevin Darley stated there is now a process of discussion taking place between the BHA and jockeys.

"Had we been properly consulted over some of the important details ... we feel that we would not be in the position we are today," he added.

Frankie Dettori and AP McCoy released a joint statement saying they would not have given their initial backing to the regulations if they had more time to consider them.

The changes were made because the BHA felt the previous rules did not effectively punish jockeys for overuse of the whip.
