Fairfield University business school dean and labor relations expert available to comment on possible MTA strike and the impact it could have on Connecticut


As the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority attempts to hammer out a new contract with the Transport Workers Union, the possibility of a strike - shutting down the New York City subway and bus system that thousands use every day - looms large. Norman Solomon, Ph.D., labor relations expert and dean of the Charles F. Dolan School of Business at Fairfield University, is available to comment on the labor negotiations as well as the business and transportation impact a strike could have on southwestern Connecticut.

Dr. Solomon, who specializes in negotiation, industrial relations and labor-management relations, has published in refereed journals and is the co-author of a book, "The System of Industrial Relations in Canada (Fifth Edition)" printed by Prentice-Hall Canada in 1996.

Dr. Solomon earned a bachelor's degree from Cornell University in industrial and labor relations; and a master's degree and doctorate in industrial relations from the University of Wisconsin. He also holds a certificate in management and leadership in education from Harvard University.
