HONOLULU (AP) - Striking Hawaiian Electric Co. and Maui Electric Co. workers will be going back to work soon after voting in favor of a new labor deal with the company.
HECO officials say employees represented by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers approved a new contract that will be in effect through Oct. 31, 2013.
The vote in favor of the contract came after the company and union negotiators reached a deal Monday.
Company spokesman Darren Pai said some workers will be back on the job this weekend, while others will return to work Monday.
Union workers walked off the job March 4.
