Harvard and Dining Workers Reach ‘Agreement’

Harvard Dining Workers Striking

Let them eat dining hall food! After weeks tension between Harvard and Dining workers, resulting in strikes, UNITE HERE Local 26 and the Harvard Administration have reached a tentative agreement signaling an end to the marching in and around Harvard Square. The deal is yet to be ratified but the President of Local 26 Brian Land says that the agreement “accomplished all our goals.” Read more about the accord in The Crimson student newspaper.

From The Crimson: “The tentative agreement came after a day of intense picketing and rallying by both HUDS workers and student supporters. More than 500 students walked out of class—the second walkout of the strike—before marching to 124 Mt. Auburn St. for a sit-in that lasted late into the night, wrapping up around 10:30 p.m. at the urging of police officers.” Here’s to peace between Harvard and Dining workers!
