BILLINGS – The Billings City Council voted Tuesday in favor of a new contract with the Teamsters Union.

It guarantees employees a 2.9 percent cost of living increase for each of the three years at a cost to the city of around $697,000 a year.

Teamsters 190 represents the largest share of Billings city workers, around 420 employees.
