Musicians at the Fort Worth Symphony have voted unanimously to authorise a strike, a union spokesman said.
They have been in pay negotiations for seven months, with no end in sight.
Pay at Fort Worth is poor to appalling. One recent principal was hired ( we heard) for $30,000 a year.
Orch President and CEO Amy Adkins says there is a $4 million gap between what the musicians want and what the organisation is prepared to pay. The music director is Miguel Harth-Bedoya.
This looks like another disaster scenario, deep in the heart of Texas.
