"Fair" Elections Act

The Harper government's latest surprise attack on democracy:

Quote:
- Fails to give the Commissioner of Elections the authority to compel witnesses to give evidence.

Chicago: Northwestern University football players seek to unionize

Quote:
For the first time in the history of college sports, athletes are asking to be represented by a labor union, taking formal steps on Tuesday to begin the process of being recognized as employees. Ramogi Huma, president of the National College Players Association, filed a petition in Chicago on behalf of football players at Northwestern University, submitting the form at the regional office of the National Labor Relations Board. Backed by the United Steelworkers union, Huma also filed union cards signed by an undisclosed number of Northwestern players with the NLRB -- the federal statutory body that recognizes groups that seek collective bargaining rights. ESPN's "Outside The Lines" first broke the story.
