FILE - This April 2, 2014 file photo shows former Northwestern University football quarterback Kain Colter, right, and Ramogi Huma, founder and president of the National College Players Association arrive on Capitol Hill in Washington. The United Steelworkers union and college football players may seem like an unlikely pairing.  Yet the sprawling union is locked in a high-stakes standoff with Northwestern University over whether student athletes on scholarships should be allowed to unionize, engage in collective bargaining and even strike. At first glance, it may seem like a big reach on the part of the union. But it’s been a long time since the Steelworkers Union just represented workers at steel mills and in other jobs directly related to steel. (AP Photo/Lauren Victoria Burke, File)
