TAMPA – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have done their part to make sure the new labor agreement doesn’t come unraveled.

The team voted unanimously Friday night in favor of recertifying the union, Bucs player rep Jeff Faine told The Tampa Tribune.

Recertifying the union is one of the final steps that must be taken before the labor agreement can be concluded.

Following recertification, the union would begin negotiating with the NFL on the several outstanding issues that remain unresolved such as drug testing, player discipline, disability and pension programs.
