Chicago Symphony Orchestra, musicians union agree to 3-year contract

CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Symphony Orchestra says it agreed to a three-year contract with its musicians union on a deal to replace the agreement that expires Sunday. The deal must be ratified by the CSO board of trustees and the orchestra members in the Chicago Federation of Musicians. CSO musicians struck for two days in September 2012 and for seven weeks March and April of 2019 before agreeing to a contract calling for a 13.25% wage increase over five years. The CSO said details of the deal will be released after ratification.
