Question of the Week: Should college players unionize?

By the C|C Whistleblower Lawyer Team

Northwestern University football players voted today on whether to unionize in the wake of a National Labor Relations Board decision finding they are employees of the University.  As the Chicago Tribune reported, it could be some time before the results are revealed since that decision is being appealed.  If they vote no, life carries on as usual; but a yes vote could cause wide-sweeping changes throughout college sports, including the prospect of salaries for college players.

What do you think – should college players join a union?

    1. I don’t think unionizing is the answer to improving the “work” conditions of so-called student-athletes in big-time college sports. But hopefully the threat of unionization could be used to pressure schools and the NCAA to eliminate some of the inequities and reduce the exploitation that currently exists.
