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.
