HONOLULU (AP) — Union leaders and the owners of some of Hawaii’s most iconic hotels have reached an agreement on a new contract that could send 2,700 striking workers back to their jobs.

Unite Here Local 5 and Kyo-ya Hotels and Resorts said in a joint statement that workers will vote on the contract Tuesday. Polls are due to close at 7:30 p.m.

Workers at five properties owned by Kyo-ya and operated by Marriott have been on strike since Oct. 8. The properties include The Royal Hawaiian Hotel, a historic institution on Waikiki beach that’s famous for its pink exterior.

The other hotels are the Sheraton Waikiki, Westin Moana Surfrider, Sheraton Princess Kaiulani and Sheraton Maui.
