Confusion Surrounds DSO Strike

DETROIT (WWJ) The war of words continues between The Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the striking musicians. 

The DSO has released a statement  saying it proposed a 36-million dollar contract proposal, which the DSO claims is what the striking musicians wanted. 

That was Thursday night and more talks were scheduled for Friday morning with a mediator, but the DSO claims the musicians cancelled that session. 

Musicians spokesman Greg Bowens says that’s not true. Bowens tells WWJ the musicans were willing to negotiate through the weekend, while the DSO says it eagerly awaits their proposal and looks forward to continuing talks.

The walkout began Oct. 4.  The DSO says it finished the 2010 fiscal year with an $8.8 million deficit.
