Today we sit-in to stand up for our rights and for what is right for our community.
In January, we approved a contract extension through July 2016. Management withdrew their threat to impose 8.7% pay cuts and agreed to maintain 2014-2015 wages, with the understanding that they would return to the bargaining table ASAP to negotiate a new agreement.
We met with management on March 9th and agreed to meet three more times this week and next week. On Monday, management abruptly cancelled all three meetings without offering alternate dates.
This recklessness, lack of good faith, and dereliction of duty on management’s part cannot be tolerated.
We will continue performing and demonstrating as more and more Fort Worth citizens join us in the fight to preserve the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra and the legacy of “Cowboys and Culture”.
Bargain Now – Growth Not Cuts!
