UPDATE - National Labor Relations Board to Hear Review of Northwestern Case

The National Labor Relations Board granted Northwestern University's request for review of the Regional Director's decision finding that the University’s grant-in-aid scholarship football players are employees under the National Labor Relations Act.  In granting review, the Board indicated it would set up a schedule for briefing, including a schedule for briefs from other interested non-parties.  Meanwhile, the election goes on.  The Northwestern grant in aid scholarship football players voted on whether to join the College Athletes Players Association, a union.  The ballots will be kept secret until the Board issues its decision on the appeal.
