    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.
