Union Files Complaint Against Cowboys Owner Over Anthem Order
Posted On: Oct 11, 2017
Oct. 11, 2017 | WORKERS’ RIGHTS | A Texas labor union has reportedly filed a grievance against Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones after he said players who refuse to stand during the national anthem will not be allowed to play. According to ESPN.com's Todd Archer, Local 100 of the United Labor Unions said Tuesday that Jones' statement violated the National Labor Relations Act because it showed he is "attempting to threaten, coerce and intimidate all Dallas Cowboys players on the roster in order to prevent them from exercising concerted activity protected under the act by saying that he will fire any players involved in such concerted activity.” bleacherreport.com
