Here is the Management's recent press release. A more fair press release, but one containing a plethora of lies, and a relatively unfair deal for the musicians in terms of attendance policy.

What are the (2 or 3) major stumbling blocks that prevent an agreement?

Sorry to hear Man!!!

Never ceases to astound me the BS that "management" foments against the very Musicians that make management relevant!!!!

It's managements JOB to provide adequate working conditions for the Orchestra!!
Or am I not thinking straight?

1. They want to reduce some full time chairs to per-service after that current chair becomes empty
2. They want to eliminate some per-service positions to be hired with the rep
3. They are increasing our work weeks, yet giving us NO vacation weeks
4. attendance Policy requires 75% of all services/weeks (which many of us rely on sub-work from bigger orchestras to survive)

Those are the current issues, i'm sure there's more behind the scenes that I can share at our next meeting.
