The National Labor Relations Board has granted Dartmouth College's trustees additional time to appeal a ruling that designates the school’s men’s basketball players as employees, setting the stage for a potential unionization vote.

In an unprecedented move, the National Labor Relations Board has extended the appeal deadline for Dartmouth College's trustees concerning a ruling that categorizes the school's men's basketball players as employees, paving the way for an upcoming unionization vote on March 5. This significant development could mark the first time NCAA athletes form a labor union, challenging the long-standing notion of athletes as 'student-athletes' and potentially altering the landscape of college athletics.
