AP -- Leadership of the University Professional & Technical Employees union approved the proposed four-year contract on Friday. It includes cost-of-living increases of 11.5 percent to 13 percent, in addition to regular step pay increases.

The deal prevents a two-tiered pension system that pushes back retirement with similar benefits for workers by five years. Workers would kick in an additional 1 percent to the pension plan in July to the standard contribution of 8 percent.

The UC system also has reached agreements with unions representing nurses, lecturers, librarians and police officers in the past two months.
