UNITE HERE Local 5 and Kyo-ya have reached a tentative agreement on a new union contract.

“We’re grateful for the solidarity of our fellow union members and the support of the entire community,” UNITE HERE Local 5 President Gemma Weinstein said today.

“The new agreement meets the needs of our employees and Kyo-ya,” said the management of Kyo-ya. “We look forward to welcoming them back and look forward to more years of working together to successfully provide world-class service to our guests. We also want to thank the community for their patience and understanding throughout this process.”

Picket lines will remain in place until the agreement is ratified by the 2,700 striking workers. Ratification will take place throughout the day, with polls closing at 7:30 pm.

Since October 8, over 2,700 workers have been on strike at five hotels, owned by Kyo-ya and operated by Marriott: Sheraton Waikiki, The Royal Hawaiian, Westin Moana Surfrider, Sheraton Princess Kaiulani, and Sheraton Maui.
