They never asked for it. A few years ago the nhlpa talked (threaten) about deposing a formal demand but the whole thing went awol when an agreement was reached.

And if they ask for recognition, the answer may be negative. I heard (radio-canada) an expert on labour laws and he mentioned that the nhlpa is trying to use the qlb in a way that goes against its nature: labor laws (around the world btw – after reading some replies, one would think it is a Quebec particularity!) are created to protect the workers against discrimination, mistreatment... their purpose is not to protect a market share!

=>The nhlpa is trying to use a labor law as a tool to serve its interests... a very corporate approach that is not in synch with the “spirit” of the law.

I support the players (basically the owners are unable to discipline themselves so they are asking, again, the players to give up earned gains/advantages to compensate their short sighted vision and indiscipline) but this move is ridiculous. I really don’t see how this whole thing can help the well being of the working force. It’s true that every worker is protected (including multi millionaires) but, again: we are not really chatting about the basic rights of the workers here.

We are chatting about protecting the nhlpa market share.

I can think of only one reply by the QLB commission: **** off.

He's right. The fact that they could have been certified will invalidate their demand. I'm pretty sure.

Edit: The board will only offer them certification and ask them what prevented them from getting it. If the reason behind the lack of said certification is anything other than we didn't ask for it, they might have a positive answer.

Edit 2: What would prevent the Montreal Canadiens from laying off their employees temporarily without calling it a lockout anyway?

Curious to hear the ruling that's for sure.

I think the labor board is unlikely to decide in favor of the players and therefore the Habs won't have to pay them during a strike or lockout. How could it be otherwise?
