November 11, 2009, 3:57 PM EST
CAW members working at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise have voted in favour of the tentative agreement by 84 per cent.
The CAW, who represents the grounds, maintenance and skilled trades employees, had reached a tentative agreement on November 6, 2009.
"We are pleased to have concluded a deal that avoids a disruption during the World Cup events held here and is acceptable to the membership," said CAW National Representative Todd Romanow. "There is still a lot to be done to properly compensate the workers at Chateau Lake Louise."
The agreement is a two-year deal retroactive back to February 1, 2009 and contains improvements to benefits, wages and some contract language.
