WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Wilmington city officials have approved a three-year collective bargaining agreement with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 320.

The News Journal of Wilmington (https://delonline.us/1Pc6U0H ) reports a pay raise is likely for some workers.

The contract calls for the 150 employees in the Public Works, Streets and Water departments to see a 3 percent cost-of-living salary increase. It also calls for a one-time payment of either $2,000 or $4,000 per worker, depending on the hire date.

City officials estimate the cost-of-living increase will cost about $262,684 while the one-time payment to employees will cost $546,852.

A funding bill for the raises is expected to be introduced by the city council on Thursday.

The agreement will expire on June 30, 2018.
