Yesterday musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra signed 3 year contracts, which go into affect Feb. 1. This comes after a 15 month long lockout.
“The average salary would drop to $118,000 in the first year, from $135,000 under the expired contract. There are small salary increases in the second two years, which musicians said would reduce the total cut to 10 percent. Musicians would pay significantly more for health care.” (via StarTribune.com)
