Harvard Reaches a Tentative Deal with Striking Dining Hall Workers

Harvard University on Tuesday reached a tentative agreement with its dining hall workers, bringing the two sides closer to a new contract after weeks of strikes and months of negotiations.

The agreement, struck around 1 a.m., arrived a day after an estimated 600 students walked out of class in support of the food service workers, who have been on strike since the beginning of the month. At least 250 of those students staged a sit-in at the administration building where negotiations were being held, remaining in the lobby well into the evening.
