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.”
