Collection Of Signatures To Decertify To Continue Through Weekend
Published November 11, 2011
The source said that the move is "player driven" by those who have talked to the NBPA player reps about the NBA's bargaining position, and agents and agencies are facilitating the gathering of signatures at their clients behest. "The process of collecting decertification petition signatures has been underway and it will continue through the weekend, " the source said. "All the various agents are talking to their various clients." If the players are able to decertify the NBPA, the NBA and players would not be able to complete a new CBA. But the NBA is expected to fight such a move and there is a possibility that the NBPA could try to block a decertification vote, which would be conducted by the National Labor Relations Board, if enough NBA players sign decertification petitions.
