NHL files Class Action Complaint seeking a Declaration ‘confirming the ongoing legality of the lockout’

NHL

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.

Only question now-how much will players allow themselves to lose

The NHL seems to forget that the players were willing to play.. it was then owners and the NHL who locked them out.  I am considering a class action lawsuit against the NHL for loss of interest in hockey.  They have taken all the fun out of it and now I am depressed...it has to be worth something.

The NHL just filed legal documentation declaring what we already knew...the season is over. Furthermore, it is openly stating that next season is done also.
