SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Workers in California’s largest public-employee union have approved a tentative contract after months of negotiations.

Spokesman Mike Roth confirmed Thursday that members of the Service Employees International Union Local 1000 had ratified the agreement reached in December. The Legislature must approve the contract before it can take effect.

The Sacramento Bee previously reported that the 42-month contract includes a one-time bonus of $2,500 and cumulative raises of 11.5 percent.

SEIU Local 1000 represents 95,000 administrative workers, librarians, technicians and registered nurses, among others.

The announcement comes a month after the union called off a scheduled one-day strike.
