BOSTON (AP) - A labor union says a 45-day strike by Marriott hotel workers in Boston is over after workers ratified a new contract agreement.

The Unite Here Local 26 union announced Saturday that workers approved the deal during an afternoon vote. Details were not released, but union officials say the contract addresses wages, job security and other issues.

A Marriott International spokeswoman confirmed the agreement and said Marriott officials look forward to welcoming workers back.

More than 1,500 union workers at seven Marriott hotels went on strike in early October after months of seeking better pay in contract negotiations. Organizers called it the city’s first-ever hotel strike.

More than 5,000 Marriott workers in San Francisco and Hawaii remain on strike, while agreements were reached in several other cities that ended walkouts.
