Following negotiation meetings with Fort Wayne Philharmonic management, Musicians of the Fort Wayne Philharmonic Players’ Association were unable to reach fair terms for a new contract. Since yesterday the musicians are on strike.

According to a press release, both sides made movement today in an attempt to reach an agreement, but remain far apart on wages.

Players’ Association Chair Campbell MacDonald states, “Fort Wayne Philharmonic management has yet to propose pay that allows us to afford basic needs, and is married to the elimination of full-time positions”.

The next negotiation meeting between Musicians and Philharmonic management is scheduled for Monday, December 12.

The Fort Wayne Philharmonic (Indiana, US) is currently in its 78th season.
