Charlotte Symphony And Musicians Agree On New Contract

The Charlotte Symphony Orchestra and its musicians have reached a new contract agreement. The 5-year deal with the American Federation of Musicians Local 342 gives full-time symphony players an 8 percent salary increase over the five years.   The Symphony says the agreement also gives the organization more flexibility with musicians’ work schedules to bring performances to audiences on holidays and Sundays.  The new contract replaces an agreement that expired at the end of August.
