STATEMENT FROM MAYOR EMANUEL ON THE CSO STRIKE
“For more than 125 years, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra has been a crown jewel within Chicago’s rich cultural landscape. None of us want to see that jewel tarnished. After speaking with both parties, it appears that we should be able to achieve an end to this seven-week strike.
Therefore, I am offering the services of my office to serve as a forum where both parties can work in
good faith to facilitate an equitable and fair solution and that brings an end the current impasse.”
