HOTEL WORKERS BACK ON JOB

Unionized hotel workers in San Francisco agreed Saturday to return to work following an eight-week lockout, dealing a major boost to the city's tourism industry on the eve of the busy holiday season.

About 4,000 maids, bellhops, cooks and other hourly wage earners will return to their jobs Tuesday while contract negotiations continue, Mayor Gavin Newsom announced. Newsom said the group representing 14 luxury hotels agreed to end the lockout of union workers for two months.
