Posted: Updated:

The Detroit police officer's union is nearing a contract agreement with the city in the midst of the bankruptcy case.

Federal mediators announced an agreement Tuesday night with the Detroit Police Officers Association on "important core economic terms" that would become part of a possible five-year contract.

The agreement would cover wages, health care, retention payments and pensions.

The city is also in talks with the firefighters union.

Many other Detroit unions have already reached contract deals.
