Northwestern Football Players Votes Sealed

Share this post

We won't know how Northwestern University's football players voted on whether to form the nation's first union for college athletes ... for a while. Alan Cubbage, Vice President, Northwestern University Relations, says the ballot boxes will be sealed for weeks or months. Because the National Labor Relations Board also has granted the University's appeal of the regional director's decision, it means that the ballots that were cast today have been impounded by the National Labor Relations Board, and whose ballots will not be counted until that appeals process or review process is completed.
NU's football players voted today on whether they can be considered employees of the school. The NLRB ruled a month ago that players are employees and can therefore unionize.
