Philly, blue-collar workers union reach new pact

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The city of Philadelphia and the union representing its blue-collar workers have reached tentative agreement on a new labor contract after years of negotiations.

Mayor Michael Nutter on Friday announced a new pact with District 33 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees to replace a contract that expired in 2009.

The city said the proposed seven-year agreement reached late Thursday night must still be ratified by members of the union, which represents about 10,000 city sanitation and water department workers and others.

The city said the Pennsylvania Intergovernmental Cooperation Authority, the state-created agency that oversees Philadelphia's finances, must approve the additional cost of the contract to the city's five-year plan.
