Turlte Bay Resort has reached a tentative contract with its union employees

KAHUKU, Hawaii — Union workers at a North Shore Oahu resort have reached a tentative contract agreement.

Details about the agreement won’t be released until Local 5 members of the Turtle Bay Resort vote on Friday.

Union leaders and hotel management say they’re pleased with the settlement.

More than 300 Local 5 members voted more than a week to allow the union to call for a strike.

The union says they have been working without a contract for more than two years while the resort owner moves forward with expansion plans.

Local 5 represents more than 10,000 workers in Hawaii’s hospitality, health care and food service industries.
