LOS ANGELES (AP) — A California union for registered nurses says its membership has approved a contract with five University of California medical centers.

California Nurses Association spokesman Chuck Idelson said Friday more than 11,000 nurses will get an average of an 11 percent pay increase over the next 26 months.

Nurses voted all week at the UC’s Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Irvine and Davis campuses.

Idelson says the contract will also provide for break protections and limit health care cost increases.

The University of California did not provide comment on the passage of the contract.
