Unionized workers at Greektown Casino in Detroit have ratified a new four-year contract.

The deal covers about 1,500 workers whose unions are part of the Detroit Casino Council that represents the United Auto Workers, the Teamsters and other unions.

The UAW says 85 percent voted Thursday in favor of the contract. The union says the agreement includes a 4 percent pay increase in each year of the agreement, enhanced 401(k) contributions and preservation of quality health care.

The Greektown agreement also includes $1,200 for each worker in lump-sum bonuses.

Workers at the city's other two casinos -- MotorCity Casino and MGM Grand Detroit Casino -- ratified new contracts last month.
