Union wants say in conduct policy
NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL players’ union is pushing for collective bargaining with the league on the personal conduct policy.
In a memo sent to each NFLPA player representative and executive board member the union cites “the NFL’s mismanagement” of several incidents, including the Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson cases. The Associated Press obtained a copy of the memo.
The union believes the league has not complied with terms of the CBA reached in 2011 in regard to personal conduct discipline.
Commissioner Roger Goodell announced in August a stiffer penalty for players involved with domestic violence, with a six-game minimum.
