The city's 30,000 apartment building workers are one step closer to having a new contract and averting a major strike.

The Realty Advisory Board voted to approve a tentative agreement with the workers' union, 32BJ.

The two groups reached the deal on April 11th.

It would give doormen, porters and other workers a raise of more than 11 percent over four years and would keep health care and retirement benefits in place.

The union is expected to approve the deal by the middle of next month.

Earlier this month, thousands of apartment workers voted to authorize a citywide strike if there was no deal was reached.

Building workers have not walked off the job since 1991. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
