A prominent U.S. labor union has filed a complaint against the Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones, following his threat to punish players who kneel during the national anthem.

A local labor union isn't seeing eye to eye with Jerry Jones due to his latest remarks.

Wade Rathke, chief organizer of Local 100, said that Jones' threat violates the National Labor Relations Act of 1935, which allows employees "to engage in protected concerted activities for the goal of collective bargaining or other mutual aid or protection".

Jones said the NFL's operations manual left the issue of standing for the national anthem ambiguous.

"Either way it's a threat and you can't threaten someone's job for concerted activity", he said.

"The point is he threatened anybody and everybody", Rathke told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

The NAACP issued a Tuesday press release charging Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, with violating NFL players' free speech rights by threatening to bench players who continue to kneel during the national anthem.

In addition, most agree that kneeling during the anthem doesn't meet Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act, which addresses organized activities related to terms and conditions about employment, wages and working conditions.

Jones said this week that he wants to take the Cowboys out of the national anthem debate that's taken hold around the league this fall, but Wednesday's schedule of meetings about the anthem suggest the debate is alive and well in Dallas. The law here is that you have the ability to act with your co-worker. Jones might be confused.
