FOOTBALL PLAYERS AT US UNIVERSITY CAN UNIONIZE

LOS ANGELES: In a decision that could herald a US college sports revolution, a regional director of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruled that Northwestern University’s American football players are employees and can unionize. Peter Sung Ohr, director of the Chicago Regional Office of the NLRB, said the time the players devote to their sport and the fact that their scholarships are linked to their football participation make them employees as defined by the National Labor Relations Act.
