ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Twin Cities’ two major orchestras are meeting with their locked-out musicians in an attempt to end lingering labor disputes.

The management of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and the musicians union were at the bargaining table Wednesday.

Meanwhile, musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra also met with management Wednesday. It was the first negotiating session since the Minnesota Orchestra locked out its musicians on Oct. 1. The two sides agreed to discuss a process for a “fresh start” to negotiations.

The Minnesota Orchestra has canceled or rescheduled concerts through Feb. 10.

SPCO musicians were locked out Oct. 21. The SPCO has canceled concerts through Feb. 8.
