A recent article in the 12/11/2012 Minneapolis Star Tribune by Kristin Tillotson focuses on growing frustration among Minnesota Orchestra Association (MOA) and St. Paul Chamber Orchestra (SPCO) ticket buyers over the extended lockouts. Tillotson’s article got me thinking about the degree of volatility among stakeholders and I’m curious to know whether or not readers notice any substantive difference in such things from one labor dispute to the next.
To that end, let’s use a poll to find out. Granted, terms such as volatility, contentiousness, etc. are mostly subjective when applied to labor disputes, but you should use your own understanding to make a decision for the poll. In this sense, there’s no right or wrong interpretation.
