National Labor Relations Board
The key question is whether college athletes will be considered employees.
The National Labor Relations Board has set arguments for next week over whether Northwestern University football players can form a union and have protections as employees of the school.
Recent graduate and former quarterback Kain Colter was once the face of Northwestern football, now he’s the face of a first-of-its-kind labor union, hoping to protect the future of all college athletes.
The union representing workers at the Park Hyatt Hotel has filed charges with federal labor authorities, after the wintertime heat lamps were turned on during a picket in the midst of the heat wave last week.
NFL team owners are now arguing that players failed to bargain in good faith during failed negotiations earlier this month, and that the move to decertify the union was simply a negotiating ploy.
