    the title of the thread is misleading....read the article ...it allows athletes from Northwestern, a private institution to form a union...I also found it interesting that the legal bills were picked up by the United Steelworkers out of Pittsburgh

    No doubt this will start a precedent but the athletes may also feel a backlash they dont want either

    Not just for students, employees are included. See tax publication 525, it spelled it out for you. It is no different than the college paying an RA, they are an employee and their room and board are not income.

    This will go on in the courts for years before anything happens.

    It will take no longer than a year, year and a half, to get all the appeals and other legal matters out of the way. By that time, athletes on virtually ALL college campuses will have their "organizational" ducks in a row. And then ... WOW! Just in time for 2016!

    All that new dues money we can steal from the paychecks and funnel to Hilary! What a GENIUS plan! SEC football players sending campaign donations to the lefties!

    it is no secret that sec football rosters are squarely democrat! somewhere in the neighborhood of 94% i think?

    swimming teams are being expanded conference wide to balance contributions at individual institutions.
