Omni Hotel reaches 3-year deal with unionized workers

The Omni Hotel in Providence has reached a three-year contract agreement with the union representing 170 of its workers.

The deal was announced Monday after four months of bargaining. It includes wage increases and protections against excessive workloads.

Houskeeper Miguelina Almanazar tells the Providence Journal  that under the contract her pay will rise to almost $16 an hour. She says she was making $11.50 an hour at the hotel in 2010.

Omni Hotels and Resorts bought the 564-room hotel adjacent the Rhode Island Convention Center from the Procaccianti Group in the fall of 2012.
