I'd think there's a big difference between a professional sports league union and a hotel employee union.
It's really hard to say what would happen, but I think the key point here is that since every player would effectively be their own UFA the competitive nature upon which teams pursue UFA's could lead to the players coming out ahead. Of course it could also lead to a loss of jobs since a number of teams may not survive if you take out the competitive nature of the game, and let New York and Toronto spend over $100M on player salaries while Phoenix and Columbus are paying $20M.
