Colorado Symphony Musicians Agree to Three-Year Contract

Classic Arts News   Colorado Symphony Musicians Agree to Three-Year Contract
Colorado Symphony Orchestra officials announced the ratification of a three-year contract with musicians yesterday, reports the Rocky Mountain News.

The deal is the orchestra's first multi-year agreement since a five-year contract expired in 2003, although single-year extensions had been approved since then.

The new contract, which runs through the 2008-09 season, stipulates pay increases of 6%, 3% and 3% respectively during the three-year period, according to the paper.

Health benefits were also changed. The News quotes musicians' representative Bil Jackson as saying, "In the 25 years that I have been involved with this orchestra, I have never felt so positive about our situation."
