New Development in the Labor Complaint Against Jerry Jones


By Sahid Fawaz

ESPN reports:

“Local 100 of the United Labor Unions has withdrawn its complaint to the National Labor Relations Board against the Dallas Cowboys.

In a news release, Local 100 said it dropped the complaint after a meeting between NFL owners and players last week that focused more on social reform than demonstrations during the national anthem. Before that meeting, Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones had said players on his team would be benched if they ‘disrespected the flag’ during the anthem.

Defensive end David Irving has raised a fist at the close of the anthem in each of the past two games. Defensive end Damontre Moore, who had raised a fist at the end of the anthem as well, was cut this week, but coach Jason Garrett said the move had nothing to do with his actions after the anthem.

‘If Jerry Jones threatens or disciplines any players of the Dallas Cowboys despite the clear position of the NFL and others, we will immediately refile these charges with the NLRB and pursue them to their conclusion,’ Local 100 chief organizer Wade Rathke said in the release.”
