Marriott hotel workers in San Francisco will return to work on Wednesday following a strike that lasted more than two months, according to the workers' union Unite Here Local 2.
Union officials announced Monday evening that an overwhelming 99.6 percent of union workers ratified a new contract for the nearly 2,500 Marriott workers who went on strike in early October to demand better pay, more job security and lighter workloads.
Union workers main demand was a wage high enough so they don't have to work two or three jobs to make ends meet.
"Now we turn to the remaining 5,500 Unite Here Local 2 hotel workers who are still working with expired contracts. To the Hilton, the Hyatt, the Fairmont, we say--we've got a deal. This is the deal," union president Anand Singh said in a statement.
Marriott officials confirmed Monday morning it had reached a tentative agreement with the union. Marriott officials didn't immediate respond to a request for a comment.
