Detroit Symphony and Musicians Reach Tentative Agreement

Classic Arts News   Detroit Symphony and Musicians Reach Tentative Agreement
Negotiators for the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and its musicians have settled on an agreement to be approved by Friday.

"We are close. I'm hopeful. There are a couple of issues; I think we'll get them wrapped up," musicians' attorney Leonard Leibowitz told The Detroit Free Press.

A proposal reached on September 6 preserves DSO's standing among the ten highest-paid U.S. orchestras, the central issue in negotiations, with an adequate third season raise.

DSO spokeswoman Jill Woodward declined to give further details, according to the The Detroit News, but said the 2007-08 season would start as scheduled on September 13.
