NLRB Accuses Owners

WASHINGTON () -- The federal board overseeing compliance with labor regulations has issued a formal complaint accusing Major League Baseball team owners of unfair labor practices in its contract dispute with players.


The National Labor Relations Board set a March 14 hearing in New York before an administrative law judge.


The NLRB accused owners Wednesday of illegally failing to make a $7.8 million contribution on Aug. 1 to the players' health and benefit plan.


The complaint said owners "have been failing and refusing to bargain collectively and in good faith with the union," which is illegal under the National Labor Relations Act.
