NBA Files Unfair Labor Practice Charge Naming Jimmer Fredette And Charles Jenkins As Defendants

Recently the NBA recently filed an unfair labor practice against the National Basketball Players Association charging it with failing to bargain in good faith regarding wages, hours, and other terms and conditions of employment as required by Section 8(d) of the National Labor Relations Act. It is one more tool being used to create leverage in the negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement.

The league's action includes Kings guard Jimmer Fredette and Warriors guard Charles Jenkins as defendants. In filing the ULP, the league is not going specifically after Fredette and Jenkins, but rather is going after the class of player they represent and the fact that they currently reside in New York, where the action was filed.

Fredette represents rookies that would receive a guaranteed contract for the coming season. Jenkins represents rookies that would not receive a guaranteed contract. The ULP charge also names Amar'e Stoudamire to represent players under contract and former Warriors player Mike Dunleavy who is a free agent.
