NHL players vote to dissolve union
The NHL Players’ Association members voted this week to give the union’s executive board the power to file a “disclaimer of interest” until Jan. 2, The Canadian Press said Friday. The news agency, citing an unidentified source, said the vote to dissolve the union drew more than the two-thirds of the required support.
If the executive board files the disclaimer, the union would dissolve and become a trade association. That would allow players to file antitrust lawsuits against the NHL.
