Workers for Marriott International Inc., the largest hotel chain in the world, are entering their third week on strike. Over 7,000 workers are a part of the effort, from cities that include Boston, San Diego, Detroit and San Jose.

With the World Series and the Head of the Charles happening soon in Massachusetts, will these events impact agreements between workers and the hotel chain in Boston?
