Chicago Symphony musicians go on strike

/ 11:40 AM September 23, 2012

CHICAGO – The Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association said orchestra musicians have gone on strike after rejecting proposals for a three-year contract.

The organization said the contract would have provided musicians with a minimum base weekly salary of $2,795 in the first year, $2,835 in the second and $2,910 in the third.

The previous weekly base minimum salary is $2,785.

Orchestra Association President Deborah Rutter said the organization was “committed to reaching a fair agreement” and regrets any inconvenience the strike causes patrons.

She said musicians rejected the organization’s final offer Saturday.

Officials with the Chicago Federation of Musicians, which represents the musicians, did not immediately return a phone call for comment Saturday night.

A Saturday night performance was canceled.
