(AP) Hyatt Hotels Corp. has reached a tentative contract with the union representing thousands of it employees, ending a four-year dispute that led to dozens of protests and a global boycott against the Chicago-based hotel chain.


The agreement between Hyatt and Unite Here announced Monday will go into effect once union contracts are approved by workers in Chicago, Honolulu, Los Angeles and San Francisco. The contracts would provide retroactive wage increases and keep employees' current health care and pension benefits through 2018.


Over the past two years, the union staged a number of one-day strikes in major cities to protest wages and working conditions.


Unite Here said the accord would end its global boycott of Hyatt that had support from other unions, workers' rights groups and civil rights organizations.
