If that's the option where the union leadership more or less quits representing the players I don't think there is a set % because technically it would not be the player's option. If the players have any say in the decision I would think it would invalidate the legality of the decision. The courts would potentially see it as nothing more than a negotiating ploy and the players would likely lose any suits they would bring afterwards...assuming I haven't mixed this up with something else I read somewhere.
