Chiefs Vote To Recertify NFLPA

From St. Joseph, Missouri

The Chiefs were one of five NFL teams that voted on Friday to approve the re-certification of the NFL Players Association as their union.

When the NFL owners locked out the players back in March, the NFLPA decertified as a union as part of their labor strategy. That allowed individual players to file an anti-trust suit against the league. The so-called Brady v. NFL suit was dropped as part of the labor agreement between owners and players.

But to continue on with the agreement, the players association must again become a union, so they can represent the current NFL players collectively. One half of the membership, plus one, must approve re-certification.

On Friday, the Chiefs got their vote done here at Missouri Western State University. They joined Cincinnati, Dallas, Denver and Jacksonville. All five teams reportedly voted unanimously in favor of re-certification.
