Northwestern University athletes won a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) bid for membership to the College Athletes Players Association (CAPA) union on Wednesday.

The school said on Wednesday afternoon that a statement from the school will come soon but that an appeal is expected, according to a tweet from NCAA reporter Allie Grasgreen. The official ruling between Northwestern Univerisity — the employer — and CAPA — the petitioner — can be found here.

NU quarterback Kain Colter tweeted his excitement following the breaking news, saying he’s proud of his teammates and considers it a “huge win for all college athletes.”
