Utah Symphony & Opera Musicians and Management Reach Tentative Deal

Classic Arts News   Utah Symphony & Opera Musicians and Management Reach Tentative Deal
The musicians and management of the Utah Symphony & Opera have reached a tentative contract agreement, the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

The deal for the three-year contract came two days after the March 15 deadline recommended by Thomas W. Morris, an independent consultant who made financial and administrative recommendations to the struggling organization earlier this month.

It is not known whether the contract contains any provisions for administrative restructuring, which the musicians had previously made a condition of a new deal, and which is also addressed in Morris's report.

At last report, musicians had been willing to accept a two-year salary freeze in order to stabilize the organization's finances, if the administrative demands were met.

Musicians will vote on the contract on March 25; the US&O board will see the agreement at a meeting March 24.
