Breaking: Orchestra is locked out in Canada coldmain
The 66 musicians of l’Orchestre symphonique de Québec were locked out of their workplace last night and told they would not receive pay or benefits.
Pay in the Quebec Symphony is appalling. Most players earn C$33-35,000. A dozen principals receive C$42-43,000.
This needs to be settled quickly, before the kids start to starve. Report here in French.
