Norman Solomon, professor of management at Fairfield University, said he's surprised the strike lasted as long as it has, noting the governor's intervention and the NLRB's findings. "In New England and Connecticut, it's rare to have a strike like this go on for so long and be so acrimonious," Solomon said.

Chicago teachers strike could offer a lesson on performance evaluations
Performance evaluation "is a nationwide issue - and it's an issue that is not going away," said Norm Solomon, a professor of management at Fairfield University in Connecticut. "I don't think anybody should be surprised that this issue is coming to the fore.

7 weeks into Connecticut nursing home strike, the accusations fly
Norman A. Solomon, a professor at the Charles F. Dolan School of Business at Fairfield University, said that with unions on the defensive and unemployment high, HealthBridge, like many other companies, had taken the offensive. "It's not far from a perfect storm," Professor Solomon said. "You have struggling low-wage workers and an employer who's decided to play hardball in a state that's usually pretty receptive to unions. You end up with a dispute that's gotten uglier than we're used to in New England."
