Fort Worth

This week, we saw the end of a three-month strike by Fort Worth Symphony musicians.  The players and management agreed on a four-year contract. The deal freezes wages for two years and provides small raises the last two. An unnamed donor gave the orchestra $700,000, clearing the symphony’s deficit. But there’s more to do. 

Update: The three-month strike by Fort Worth Symphony musicians is over. Musicians on Wednesday voted to approve a new contract. The agreement was reached after two days of federal mediation.

The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra has canceled concerts through the end of the year due to the ongoing musicians' strike.

Tensions over the contract between the Fort Worth Symphony and its musicians continue. The symphony says it has issued its final offer and musicians will vote on it Friday, but it’s not clear if they’ll accept it.
