NEW YORK -- Nneka Ogwumike will serve a third term as president of the Women's National Basketball Players Association after being reelected.
The Los Angeles Sparks star has served as WNBPA president since 2016, first winning reelection in 2019. She was instrumental in negotiating for the ground-breaking 2020 collective bargaining agreement that saw major pay increases with the average salary reaching $130,000 and guarantees of full salaries of players on maternity leave. The contract, which runs through 2027, also provided enhanced family benefits, travel standards and other health and wellness improvements.
"I'm honored to serve another term as WNBPA president, and to represent the phenomenal members of this historical Union," said Ogwumike. "I am excited to continue the legacy of the WNBPA."
"I am excited to serve as WNBPA first vice president and to ensure that the voices of my peers are heard, and that as a league, we continue to be at the forefront of fighting for social justice," said Plum.
"It can be easy to make assumptions about the league and how it is run," said Turner. "Instead, I want to be a pivotal part in the decision-making process, and to have a seat at the table to be a part of the business off of the court, and what more we can do to grow our league."
