NCPA Files Formal Action For Union To Rep College Athletes

Athletes are asking to be represented by a labor union "for the first time in the history of college sports," taking formal steps today to "begin the process." National College Players Association President Ramogi Huma filed a petition in Chicago on behalf of football players at Northwestern Univ. Huma "also filed union cards signed by an undisclosed number of Northwestern players" with the National Labor Relations Board (ESPN.com, 1/28).
