LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police officers are rallying at City Hall for a more favorable union contract

City News Service reports about 200 officers have filled the City Council chamber Tuesday morning.

Earlier this month some 5,800 members of the LA Police Protective League rejected a tentative agreement that included $70 million in overtime pay.

Union officials say officers are underpaid and face poor working conditions. They also say the LAPD's disciplinary system needs to be overhauled.
