Letter to Rep. John Kline on Unionizing Student Athletes

May 08, 2014

​This letter from ACE President Molly Corbett Broad to John Kline, chairman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee, was sent in advance of the May 8 hearing "Big Labor on College Campuses: Consequences of Unionizing Student Athletes."

Broad notes that to adopt the proposition that student-athletes who receive athletic scholarships are employees would disserve the students’ education and impede institutions’ ability to perform their essential missions. She also emphasizes ACE's stance that such a dramatic change in federal policy should not be made by the National Labor Relations Board but by Congress.
