No one is saying what kind of deal they struck until workers vote on it.

But a joint statement says the agreement will "protect vital services, minimize layoffs, and assist the city with its economic recovery."

Also on Thursday, the city of San Jose announced it will impose a wage freeze for 1,000 workers and the city's top four management employees have voluntarily rolled back their salaries.
