Cleveland Orchestra and Musicians Reach Labor Deal

Tuesday, 19 Jan 2010 05:13 PM

The Cleveland Orchestra and the union representing its musicians have tentatively agreed on a new labor deal, ending a brief strike.

Howard Landau, a spokesman for the musicians, says the agreement was reached early Tuesday. No more details were released.

Landau says the agreement needs to be ratified by musicians and the orchestra board. That could happen later Tuesday. A message seeking comment was left for the orchestra.

It wasn't immediately clear whether performances planned in Miami and at Indiana University would go on.

The Cleveland Federation of Musicians, Local 4 of the American Federation of Musicians, went on strike for the first time in 30 years Sunday over a pay impasse. The contract expired at the end of August.
