Harvard University has been stockpiling frozen food in anticipation of a dining hall worker strike that commenced Wednesday morning, The Harvard Crimson reported.
The strike, the first one at the Ivy League university in more than 30 years, was spurred by failed contract negotiations between Harvard and UNITE HERE Local 26, the union representing Harvard University Dining Service (HUDS) workers.
