NHL and players head to court in labor dispute

League files class action complaint against players’ union

The National Hockey League (NHL) and its players can’t seem to come to an agreement. For months, the two parties have been embroiled in labor disputes with no success. On Friday, they landed in court with the NHL filing a class action suit against the NHL Players’ Association (NHLPA), the players’ union.

In addition to filing unfair labor practice claims against the players’ union, the NHL also asked the court to address whether the player lockout was legal.
