Tuesday in Chicago, with former quarterback Kain Colter as their frontman, Northwestern football players took the historic first steps toward joining a labor union. The College Athletes Players Association (CAPA) is the working title. They have the United Steelworkers in their corner, and former UCLA linebacker Ramogi Huma – the founder of the National College Players Association – as their leader. A petition has been filed with the National Labor Relations Board.
