Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka Celebrating College Athletes Players Association’s Victory at the NLRB

Washington, DC–(ENEWSPF)–March 27, 2014.  Yesterday’s decision is great news for the Northwestern football players and all college athletes.  It affirms the basic principle that people who work hard deserve fair treatment.  It’s that simple, whether on a playing field or anywhere else.  Fairness and justice are universal rights. We applaud the leadership of the College Athletes Players Association (CAPA) and the United Steelworkers in pursuit of the timeless idea that we are stronger when we stand together.
