Union: Date set for Northwestern vote. A national policy director of United Steelworkers, Tim Waters, says the vote will be April 25.


CHICAGO (AP) -- A union official says a date has been set for Northwestern football players to vote on authorizing a union to represent them in collective bargaining with the university.
A national policy director of United Steelworkers, Tim Waters, says the vote will be April 25.
Waters and the Steelworkers have worked closely with the College Athletes Players Association, or CAPA, as it pushed for the right to form the nation's first college athletes' union.
In a decision that rocked college sports, the regional director of the National Labor Relations Board ruled last week that the Northwestern players were employees and so could unionize. The Evanston, Ill.-based university has said it will file an appeal of the NLRB's ruling.
