UTICA, N.Y. (AP) - Registered nurses at a hospital in Utica have ratified a new contract with hospital management.

The New York State Nurses Association announced Wednesday night that nurses at St. Elizabeth Medical Center overwhelmingly ratified a new four-year contract.

The union says the contract calls for the addition of five full-time employees, an increase in wages by 9% over the length of the contract and changes to health insurance.

The two sides reached a tentative contract agreement on Aug. 27 with help from a federal mediator.

The new contract will expire on June 30, 2019.
