NHL play­ers vote to dis­solve union

Austin American-Statesman - - C SPORTS -

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.
