The optics look pretty bad here. Management should have taken pay cuts and furloughs as well. Especially if the finances required reduction in orchestra musicians.

I realize this is a Musicians' Union report and may be somewhat slanted, but I agree this is bad press.

Keep the faith, Brian.

When bad-faith managements and boards reveal themselves this way, the public almost always sides with musicians.

I wish you the best.
