    there are NO dues

    "To join, the athlete would pay the $9 monthly membership dues paid by teachers, corrections officers, health care workers and others working for state agencies."

    there are NO dues.... but, being a member ONLY offers limited benefits, such as a BANKING ACCOUNT.... it stops WELL SHY of saying these players would be PAID as State Employees.

    Not really sure of the implications. What would they gain from joining the union? They'd also have to pay dues (they already have little extra income).

    it doesn't mention them being PAID.

    The State Employees Association of North Carolina, a union for public workers, will allow scholarship student-athletes at public universities to join as state employees.

    Personally, I see this as a slow death to collegiate sports. Any thoughts?
