Abstract

This Comment recounts the origins of both the NFL and the NFLPA, providing great detail into the bargaining process between the two entities from 1950 until 1993. This level of detail is necessary because the most effective method to determine a party’s sincerity in good faith bargaining, which is a paramount concept in labor law, is to keep in context the bargaining history of the parties. This history may influence the level of contentiousness amongst the parties and their sincerity to reach an agreement.

Keywords: NFL, NFLPA, collective bargaining, good faith, unfair labor practice, Maravent, Levine
