On Monday, striking Detroit Symphony Orchestra musicians took their cause to the epicenter of all activity in Detroit this week — the North American International Auto Show. A half-dozen musicians handed out about 200 fliers at Cobo Center on Monday morning, asking Ford Motor Co. to withdraw its support for the DSO until the strike is over, said musicians' spokesman Haden McKay.
"We chose Ford because it's a great institution with great products and great labor relations," McKay said.
"They shouldn't be associated with an institution that's trying to crush its union."
