SPCO musicians consider management proposal

Author:

Musicians at the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra are considering a proposal from management that would not resolve all their differences but would end the lockout that began Oct. 21.

The Star Tribune reports the union has until Monday to respond to the "play and talk" proposal from management. If musicians approve, they would resume performing while continuing to negotiate a new contract to replace the one that expired last June. The "talk and play" period would extend to June 30, salvaging the final one-third of the season.

Last month, management canceled concerts through March 23. If the two sides agree to what's on the table, the SPCO season could resume sooner than that.

The terms include a 28-player ensemble, a retirement program for players 55 or older, and a guarantee that no current musician would lose his or her job.
