NFL Files Unfair-Labor Practices Complaint Against Union in Contract Talks

The National Football League filed an unfair labor practices complaint against its players' union with the National Labor Relations Board, the latest dispute between the two sides involving negotiations on a new collective bargaining agreement.

The NFL said the NFL Players Association isn't bargaining in good faith on a new contract, using delays to "run out the clock" on talks before disbanding the union and suing the league under antitrust law for colluding to restrict players' pay. The NFLPA said the league's claim has "absolutely no merit."
