New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio recently announced that the city and the Committee of Interns and Residents/Service Employees International Union Healthcare have reached a tentative contract agreement.
 
Under the contract, which would begin retroactively on October 26, 2010 and expires on February 25, 2018, members of the union would receive wage increases based on established civilian patterns and a one-time $1,000 ratification payment. It also includes a new childcare benefit and investments in the Patient Care Trust Fund. The agreement would not require any new funding over the previous budget projections.
 
The full in-service membership of the union must approve the terms of the agreement. The union covers more than 2,000 medical and dental residents.
