NCAA statement on NLRB decision

"The National Labor Relations Board’s decision to reject jurisdiction and dismiss the union petition in this case is appropriate.  In its ruling, the NLRB recognized the NCAA continually evolves to better support college athletes.  In recent years we have provided college athletes with multi-year scholarships, free education for former college athletes and unlimited meals. Further, college athletes helped Division I change rules in January to provide guaranteed, full cost of attendance scholarships and improve student wellbeing. The NCAA and its member schools are committed to providing the best support possible for all college athletes and will continue to do so in the future.  This ruling allows us to continue to make progress for the college athlete without risking the instability to college sports that the NLRB recognized might occur under the labor petition."

-- Donald Remy, NCAA chief legal officer.
