Ohio bill: Athletes not employees
First Published Apr 07 2014 11:32 pm • Last Updated Apr 07 2014 11:32 pm

college sports • An Ohio legislative panel changed a budget bill on Monday to make clear that college athletes are not employees under state law, following a recent ruling from a regional director of the National Labor Relations Board that Northwestern University football players could unionize.

The ruling said full scholarship players can be considered employees and thus have the right to form a union.

The Ohio House Finance and Appropriations Committee amended a midterm budget proposal Monday in Columbus to clarify that college athletes are not considered employees.

Northwestern players will vote April 25 on whether to become the first college athletes represented by a union.
