Musicians Reject The Latest Offer From Orch. Management

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It appears the end to the ongoing dispute between the Minnesota Orchestra musicians and its management is not over yet. Thursday, the musicians rejected the latest offer from the orchestra management.

The proposal would have brought the musicians back with two months of their old salary, but a 25 percent pay cut for the remaining 22 months of the two-year contract.

They also took a vote to stand by the proposal put forth by a mediator, which would include pay cuts of 6 percent.

The Musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra were locked out by management on Oct. 1 of last year.

Orchestra management has said pay cuts are needed to deal with a huge deficit.
