The L.A. City Council approved Friday a new three-year contract with the Los Angeles Police Protective League, the union representing L.A. police officers.

The deal calls for no salary increases in the coming year, but officers will get a 1-percent raise next year followed by more gradual increases through 2014.

In exchange, the union agreed to reductions in pension and health care contributions by the city.

Ninety-six percent of union members voted in favor of the new contract.
