MARTINEZ, Calif. (AP) - Contra Costa County health system nurses have reached a tentative two-year contract agreement combining a 16 percent pay raise with other perks they say should help stem the tide of nurses leaving for higher-paying jobs.

The Contra Costa Times reports Tuesday (http://bayareane.ws/1WuYSUE ) the tentative agreement reached after nearly a year and a half of bargaining would cover more than 900 California Nurses Association registered nurses, public health nurses, “per diem” nurses and nurse practitioners.

Most work at the county hospital in Martinez, and others are at county clinics in Martinez, North Richmond, Antioch, Pittsburg, Concord, Bay Point, San Pablo and Brentwood, at the county jails in Martinez and Richmond, and at Juvenile Hall in Martinez.

Union members are set to vote Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday on the agreement, and the negotiating team is recommending its approval.
