Striking Harvard dining hall workers vote Wednesday on whether or not to end their three-week-long strike and accept the agreements reached by the university and the union early Tuesday morning.

The union has been asking for their health care cost to remain the same and an annual wage of at least $35,000 a year.

Guest

Brian Lang, president of UNITE HERE Local 26, the union representing over 700 Harvard dining hall workers. The union tweets @UNITEHERE26.
