    Members of Local 5098 of the United Nurses and Allied Professionals walk a picket line outside of Rhode Island Hospital in Providence.

    Rhode Island's largest hospital system has reached a deal for a new contract with unionized nurses and health care workers.

    Lifespan and Local 5098 of the United Nurses and Allied Professionals announced late Friday they've reached a tentative deal on a new, five-year contract.

    The two sides say they'll provide more details about the agreement before the labor union's 2,400 members vote on the proposal Wednesday.

    The announcement could end a protracted contract battle that resulted in a weeklong worker's strike in late July, though union members voted down a previous deal.
