Nurses at Flushing Hospital on Thursday agreed to a new three-year contract.

The 420 registered nurses had been without a contract since New Year's Eve.

The new deal is retroactive to January 1 and runs through December 2014.

The New York State Nurses Association says the new contract contains no concessions on the part of the nurses, who were asking for an increase in medical benefits and pensions.

The nurses threatened to strike on Tuesday, but later called it off when an agreement became a possibility.
