WINNIPEG -- The NHL has filed a class-action complaint and an unfair-labour-practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board in the U.S.

The league's response is to information leaking out today that the NHL Players Association has decided to proceed with a vote among its members to authorize a "disclaimer of interest" so that the union can stop representing the players in the ongoing labour impasse.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman leaves following labor talks, Friday, Nov. 9, 2012, in New York.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman leaves following labor talks, Friday, Nov. 9, 2012, in New York.

Here's the wording of the NHL's statement: "Today, in response to information indicating that NHL Players have or will be asked to vote to authorize the National Hockey League Players' Association's executive board to proceed to 'disclaim interest' in continuing to represent the Players in collective bargaining, the National Hockey League filed a Class Action Complaint in Federal Court in New York seeking a declaration confirming the ongoing legality of the lockout. Simultaneously with the filing of its Complaint, the NHL also filed an unfair labour practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board alleging that by threatening to "disclaim interest," the NHLPA has engaged in an unlawful subversion of the collective bargaining process and conduct that constitutes bad faith bargaining under the National Labor Relations Act.
