LOS ANGELES (AP) — The city of Los Angeles and the union that represents police officers have reached a tentative agreement on a new labor contract.

Los Angeles Police Protective League President Paul Weber said Friday that the contract is fair and neither side got everything that it wanted.

Weber said he wouldn’t disclose details of the agreement until it had been presented to members at ratification sessions.

The city had asked for at least $41 million in concessions from the union, including requiring police officers to contribute to their retirement health care.

Unions representing the majority of civilian city workers have recently struck similar deals with the city, which is facing budget problems.

The union represents more than 9,900 rank-and-file officers. The previous contract expires June 30.
