Another one of Akron's labor unions approved their contract with the city.
The Beacon Journal reports members of the Civil Service Personnel Association (CSPA) voted to approve a three-year contract, with 99 percent of its membership voting in favor of the agreement.
The CSPA announced the results of the vote Thursday.
CSPA President Dan Sladek told the newspaper he felt it was the right agreement at the right time given the economic climate.
The union voted 79-1 in favor of the deal which gives raises of 2 percent in 2013 and 1 percent in years 2014 and 2015.
Akron's police union was the first of four to finalize their vote, approving their contract with the city Wednesday. Both the fire union as well as AFSCME Local 1360 are expected to announce their agreements in the near future.
All of the agreements will be going to Akron City Council for final approval.
