Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra reaches tentative Collective Bargaining Agreement with its Musicians


Kalamazoo, MI August 9, 2016 - The Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra Board of Directors and Management is pleased to announce that it reached a formal tentative Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) with its musicians. The Kalamazoo Federation of Musicians – Local 228 will submit the new tentative contract for ratification by its musicians and, thereafter, the KSO management will submit the contract to the Board of Directors for ratification as well. Instrumental in reaching this tentative agreement was the rehearsal schedule for the KSO’s Symphonic Series concerts; one evening rehearsal per day instead of the two rehearsals.
