Housekeepers at the Harvard-owned Doubletree by Hilton Boston-Cambridge in Allston are on strike today. It is the first strike of housekeepers in Boston’s history.
Harvard housekeepers say they have confronted pain and sometimes life-altering injuries working at the hotel. They will speak at a public event with Harvard dining hall workers at 9:30am. Later, at 5:00pm, over 800 supporters from the Cambridge and Boston communities, including Harvard students, will join the housekeepers for a speak out.
