NLRB RULES FOR MCCULLUM, AGAINST SEATTLE

SHARE NLRB RULES FOR MCCULLUM, AGAINST SEATTLE

Former Seattle wide receiver Sam McCullum was illegally discharged by the Seahawks when he was cut before the strike-marred 1982 season, the National Labor Relations Board ruled.

McCullum, then the Seahawks' player representative, must be given back pay, with interest, from the time of his release and a job "substantially equivalent" to the job he lost, the NLRB ruled in a 2-1 decision.
