NBA Players’ Union Files Complaint about Boston Celtics

The NBA players’ union said it planned to file a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board after one of its officials was denied access to the Celtics locker room before Game 2 of the Boston-Cleveland series Thursday night.

Union spokesman Dan Wasserman said the union was initially told that no one from the organization would be allowed in the Celtics’ locker room. After calls of protest were made to the Celtics and to the league office, the team agreed to allow union director Billy Hunter into the locker room prior to tip-off.

Another union official, attorney Hal Biagas, was told he could have access to the locker room after the game, but not before. [ESPN]
