War of words in Northwestern-athletes' union fight

WASHINGTON (AP) Northwestern University and a group trying to unionize college athletes are trading accusations as the National Labor Relations Board considers the school's appeal of a federal ruling that scholarship athletes essentially are employees of the university and therefore have the right to unionize, bargain collectively and even strike.

The College Athletes Players Association, which wants to be recognized as a full-fledged union, filed a brief Tuesday urging the board to reject the university's appeal.

"Northwestern's entire position in this case is a castle built on sand," the group said.
