Cambridge, Mass. - Housekeepers at the Harvard-owned DoubleTree Suites by Hilton complain of injury at a far higher rate than their peers at other hotels. They are responsible for cleaning more rooms than their fellow housekeepers in the area. And, in a year and a half of asking, they have not been able to get DoubleTree management to agree to a fair process as they try to form a union.
Their response Thursday was a one-day strike.
