NFL Files Unfair Labor Practice Charge Against The NFLPA
Published February 14, 2011
"The NFL is asking for nothing more than the NLRB to order the union to bargain in good faith," the league said. "The NFL stated to the NLRB that the union has engaged in 'surface bargaining' and tactics designed to avoid reaching an agreement before the CBA expires so that it can file antitrust litigation. … The union’s strategy amounts to an unlawful anticipatory refusal to bargain."
The NFLPA in a statement said, "The players didn't walkout and the players can't lockout. Players want a fair, new and long-term deal. We have offered proposals and solutions on every issue the owners have raised. This claim has absolutely no merit."
