Chicago in late bid to avert strike

They are talking through the weekend.

Message from the CSOA:

The Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association (CSOA) has offered the musicians of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra (CSO), represented by the Chicago Federation of Musicians (CFM), a new contract providing for improvements in salary and working conditions, as well as substantial retirement benefits. On Friday, March 8, CSOA President Jeff Alexander shared the Association’s current offer in a letter to all the members of Orchestra. As negotiations continue, the Association remains committed to reaching consensus on a new agreement allowing our concert season to continue uninterrupted.

UPDATE: Musicians say the strike is still on
