NHL files Class Action Complaint seeking a Declaration ‘confirming the ongoing legality of the lockout’
The NHL filed a class action complaint in Federal Court in New York on Friday to confirm the ongoing legality of the lockout. The NHL reacted in response to information suggesting the NHL Players may vote to decertify the NHLPA.
While simultaneously filing the complaint, the NHL also filed an Unfair Labor Practice Charge with the National Labor Relations Board. The charge is made on the grounds that the NHLPA has “engaged in an unlawful subversion of the collective bargaining process and conduct that constitutes bad faith bargaining under the National Labor Relations Act.”
The NHL issued a press release regarding the filing of the Class Action Complaint.
