    Wish there more details. The only way this would be acceptable is if it affected ONLY newly hired players. I would hate to think a musician with 20-30 years or more is suddenly going to receive less per year than what he/she had planned on.

  • Emil Archambault says:

    A pension of 80 000$ a year? Please…
