CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire State Employees Union says workers have ratified a new two-year contract covering about 9,000 employees.

SEA/SEIU Local 1984 officials say the contract was approved by 95 percent of union members.

The contract features 2 percent raises each of the next two years and better dental and life insurance benefits.

Changes in health care provisions, in turn, will save the state $10 million over the course of two years.

The Legislature still has to fund the agreement. It covers employees in more than two dozen state agencies, including transportation, safety, education, corrections and health and human services.
