After half a year out of work, the 1,250 gas workers locked out by National Grid have a new contract.

Union leaders and representatives from the company reached a tentative agreement last week on a deal that would replace the contract that expired in June when negotiations broke down.

On Monday, a majority of the membership of the two locked-out unions approved the negotiated contract in separate votes.
