👀 Good morning to everyone but especially …


Normally, the last-place team in the Ivy League doesn’t get the top billing in this newsletter.

But Monday was far from a normal day for Dartmouth. The Big Green got a big win off the court, with the National Labor Relations Board regional manager ruling the members of the team are school employees and can vote to form a union.

Dennis Dodd explains:

Dodd: “In essence, the decision changes the decades-old designation from ‘student-athlete’ to ‘student-employee,’ at least at Dartmouth. That NLRB official decided the players should be compensated because of the labor they provide to the private Hanover, New Hampshire-based school. As such, Dartmouth players could collectively bargain for salary, working conditions such as practice times and travel arrangements.”

Dartmouth plans to appeal the decision, per reports. The vote to unionize, meanwhile, could come within a month and requires a simple majority to pass.
