Work by NBRA
The National Basketball Officials Association (NBOA) was founded in 1973 due to labor conditions that National Basketball Association (NBA) referees deemed as unfit. At the time, the informal union believed that their salary and benefits were grossly inadequate. It was not until 1977 that the union became known as the National Association of Basketball Referees (NABR). Today, they are the National Basketball Referees Association (NBRA).
