NFL Players Union Challenges League’s New National Anthem Policy

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

The National Football League (NFL) drama over the National Anthem is far from over.

The new National Anthem policy announced earlier this year by the league is being challenged by the NFL Players Association.

CBS Sports reports:

The NFL Players’ Association announced on Tuesday that it has filed a grievance on behalf of the players challenging the league’s controversial anthem policy, which was introduced in May.

“The union’s claim is that this new policy, imposed by the NFL’s governing body without consultation with the NFLPA, is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement and infringes on player rights,” the NFLPA said in a statement. “In advance of our filing today, we proposed to the NFL to begin confidential discussions with the NFLPA Executive Committee to find a solution to this issue instead of immediately proceeding with litigation. The NFL has agreed to proceed with those discussions and we look forward to starting them soon.”

The players union announced its decision on Twitter:

The players union action is a bad move for the players and the NFL.

The NFL suffered a loss of fan viewership last year because of the player protests and the union is keeping the controversy alive.
