Mayor Bill de Blasio is announcing a new labor contract for New York City's largest municipal union.

   District Council 37, which represents more than 100,000 city workers, agreed to a new contract on Wednesday which includes 10 percent raises over seven years.

   That falls in line with a pattern of raises established by the new teachers' union contract agreed to in May.
