The plans for this strike were started right at the beginning of the school year and now it’s happening.

HUDS Strike Will Continue into the Weekend, More Dining Halls Close

Harvard dining services workers’ historic strike will continue into the weekend and additional dining halls will close for the time being, according to emails sent from Faculty Deans and Unviersity Dining services.

“I have just received an update from HUDS indicating that the work stoppage seems likely to continue into tomorrow and perhaps a couple of days longer, while negotiations continue,” wrote Pforzheimer Faculty Dean Anne Harrington, who is also a History of Science professor, Friday afternoon.

According to an email from Harvard University Dining Services, open dining halls this weekend include: Eliot House, Kirkland House, Dunster House, Quincy House, Currier House, Winthrop House, and Annenberg. Freshmen will not be able to eat in the Houses over the weekend.

As workers picketed across Harvard’s campuses on the third day of their strike, representatives from their Boston-based union UNITE HERE Local 26 continued contract talks with the University’s negotiation team.
