Virginia Hepner, the hardline Woodruff Arts Center chief, has given the musicians untl Monday to accept her unwavering terms or face cancellation of the next chunk of their season. Hepner has made no substantive concessions in the federal mediation talks.
She informed the musicians: ‘Our proposal will remain open for your acceptance until 4PM, Monday, October 27, 2014. If not accepted by that time, we will be forced to make further cancellations.’
It appears the WAC is prepared to freeze the players out.
