Sure they can. They just can't win before the NLRB. In this case, the intent is to lose.
The only point I was trying to make is that this CBA is dead. It can't be lifted unless both sides agree to a new CBA.
Or unless the NLRB restores it because the NHL is obviously bargaining in bad faith.
I just don't see why the NHL would do this...
Because they want to win the labour dispute.
