Philadelphia Orchestra, Unionized Musicians Continue Contract Talks
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Negotiations are continuing between the Philadelphia Orchestra and the union representing its musicians.
Both sides are being tight-lipped, unwilling to risk the fragile negotiations at this time. Both the orchestra and the union have agreed to a news blackout.
A joint statement released to KYW Newsradio indicates they are focused on reaching an agreement and solutions together at the negotiating table and not in the press.
At issue is musicians’ base pay, the size of the orchestra, vacation time, and overtime.
