http://www.canoe.ca/NewsStand/WinnipegSun/Sports/2005/03/19/966054-sun.html is interference and intimidation of a locked-out employee covered under sections 7 & 8 of the NLRB Act ? it's my opinion that it is. players signing contracts and playing during the lockout is a concerted activity of the union and authorized by the NHLPA. it's pretty clear to me that poile is violating section 8(a)i of the act. I imagine this story is going to gain alot of teeth if the league goes the impasse route, followed by the nhlpa filing with the nlrb.
