Cindy's Waterfront Restaurant and cafeteria workers at the Monterey Bay Aquarium have won their first contract with UNITE HERE Local 483! The new union contract provides major improvements, including the largest raises the workers have ever won, a reduction in the cost of healthcare, and workers' rights.

"The most important thing for me is that by standing together, my co-workers and I won respect and a strong voice at our jobs," said seven-year barista and organizing committee member Cynthia Corres, "Also, I'm so proud that more of my co-workers and their families will be able to afford good healthcare."

The workers are employees of Aramark who cook and serve food for thousands of tourists who visit the famous Aquarium.
