Talks between the Spanish Professional Footballers' Union (AFE) and the Spanish Football League (LFP) took place on Saturday without progress being made.
This weekend's scheduled opening to the Primera and Segunda Division fixtures has already been postponed as a result of a disagreement over the issue of unpaid wages.
Talks will now resume at the start of next week as the two bodies look to avoid the strike going into the second round of the season.
A statement from the LFP said: "The Association of Spanish Footballers and the Professional Football League will hold a further meeting on Monday, August 22 at 12.00pm in the headquarters of the LFP, which will continue the open dialogue to try to resolve the situation of a strike raised by the AFE.
"Both returned to hold a meeting today, following yesterday's meeting."
The AFE announced last week that players from the top two divisions would go on strike for the first two weeks of the 2011/12 season unless an agreement with the LFP was reached over the issue of unpaid wages.
The AFE want a guaranteed fund to protect players' wages in the event of their clubs being declared insolvent.
The Primera Division season was due to begin today, with tomorrow's games including champions Barcelona going to Malaga and Real Madrid hosting Athletic Bilbao, while the Segunda Division was scheduled to begin Friday night with a fixture between Villarreal B and Hercules.
