Central Park Boathouse boss Dean Poll and the employees that were striking for the last 44 days have finally come to an agreement: Crain’s has it that yesterday the two sides signed a four-year contract. Exact terms are not disclosed, but reportedly workers will get raises and health care; the city will revisit the terms of its deal with Poll since the new agreement will up his operating costs. Since contract disputes were what led Poll to abandon plans to reopen Tavern on the Green, Crain’s speculates whether this development might mean good things for that beleaguered restaurant.
