LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and the union for Department of Water and Power workers reached a deal for a new employee contract Wednesday night, ending months of negotiations over salaries and benefits.

“Today, I am pleased to announce a new DWP contract that contains tough amendments I fought for,” Garcetti said in a statement Thursday. “It delivers reform, saves the ratepayers money through further salary reductions, and clears the way for the further changes we need.”
