College Football Unions?

I was intrigued by this story about the petition by the Northwestern University football team to form a union. In prior posts I’ve criticized the NCAA and argued that players in football and basketball should get paid.

I do not know enough about labor law to know if the NRLB might grant this petition, but it is a great way of drawing attention to the problem. It is also worth noting that arbitration is what led to the creation of free agency in baseball. Sometimes an unjust system gets challenged from an unexpected quarter.
