San Diego lifeguards have a new contract after members voted to approve the proposal.

The Teamsters Local 911 members voted to accept the agreement worked out between union and city negotiators this week.

The contract doesn't meet the expectations of union leaders.

They were hoping for health care coverage that's in line with the package city firefighters get. Lifeguards say they'll work for that in the future.
