Strikes at German orchestras and opera housesmain
There have been work stoppages at several companies over the past two days in anticipation of today’s resumption of wage-bargaining talks by orchestral players and stage staff.
Stoppages of up to half an hour were called at Frankfurt, Nuremberg, Kassel, Leipzig, Giessen, Halle Reutlingen and Münster. Players in state orchestras are seeking a 2.1 percent pay rise.
