DSO, Musicians Resume Talks

DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – The Detroit Symphony Orchestra and its striking musicians could soon be making beautiful music again. Both parties are scheduled to meet Thursday – about a week after new offers from the players and management were filed with a federal mediator.

The musicians at the time renewed their call for the orchestra to reconsider a compromise proposal for a 3-year contract with compensation of $36 million, down from the previous contract’s $48 million but slightly above the $34 million management offered.

The musicians went on strike in October after management implemented pay-cuts of about 30 percent to pay for deficits. They haven’t had a bargaining meeting of this type since November.
