Negotiations Resume with Striking San Francisco Symphony Musicians
Management is meeting once again with striking San Francisco Symphony musicians, the Symphony announced on Friday.
Negotiations resumed this morning and are expected to continue all weekend with help from a federal mediator.
“We’re hopeful we can continue to work hard toward a solution and have our very talented and gifted musicians back on stage at Davies Hall very, very soon,” said Oliver Theil, who directs communications for the Symphony.
The musicians walked off the job three weeks ago, in protest over a contract offer with a 1 percent raise over the next 16 months. The strike has forced the Symphony to cancel local concerts and an East Coast tour.Related
