HONOLULU (AP) - Union workers have reached a contract agreement with 1 of the largest hotels in Waikiki.

The agreement ends a boycott against the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort & Spa.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the agreement covers also Hyatt employees represented by Unite Here in San Francisco and Los Angeles. A contract for the Waikiki hotel expired in 2010.

The union declined to provide contract specifics.

Local union officials have said the main issue was subcontracting and outsourcing of jobs. Workers also wanted better working conditions for housekeepers, who have to lift heavy beds.

The national union says all proposed contracts provide retroactive wage increases and maintain health care and pension benefits.

If ratified, the contract covers workers until 2018.
