WASHINGTON (AP) - The College Athletes Players Association is criticizing Northwestern University's argument for overturning a ruling that would allow the school's football players to unionize.
Northwestern is appealing a ruling by a regional director of the National Labor Relations Board who said that the school's football players are employees under federal law and thus entitled to unionize.
CAPA says Northwestern ''has not established grounds for review of the regional director's factfinding.'' Wednesday's filing also attacks other parts of the appeal.
The players are set to vote by secret ballot April 25 on whether to form a union. CAPA would represent them.
The Evanston, Ill.-based university argues in the appeal that its athletic program ''is fully integrated with its academic mission, and that it treats its athletes as students first.''
