Discord Grows Between Fort Worth Symphony Management And Musicians

Jan 19, 2016

Tensions over the contract between the Fort Worth Symphony and its musicians continue. The symphony says it has issued its final offer and musicians will vote on it Friday, but it’s not clear if they’ll accept it.  

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, musicians voted to authorize a strike. The musicians say they can go on strike at any time, but are not obligated to do so.

The symphony's plan cuts musician pay by 8.4 percent and trims vacation and weeks of work, but won’t reduce the number of concerts in a season. 

Members say they took 13.5 percent cuts five years ago and shouldn’t face more because the city and economy are growing again.

Union President Ken Krause says symphony management isn't doing enough.
