Weeks after the NHL and NHLPA made their respective cases, the Alberta Labour Relations Board is expected to determine if the current lockout is legal in Alberta on Wednesday, according to the Edmonton Sun.
The NHLPA is hoping the board will stop the lockout in the province because they feel Alberta’s laws regarding a lockout weren’t met by the NHL. The league argued that ultimately all players belong to the same union and the vast majority of the players in the NHLPA are employed by non-Albertan teams.
The NHL will reportedly appeal the ruling if the relations board’s ruling favors the NHLPA.
Meanwhile, the union and league are also expected to resume their CBA negotiations tomorrow, although the major economic issues won’t be part of the talks.
