Musicians of the Columbus Symphony Orchestra (CSO) filed unfair labor practice charges the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, Inc. claiming that the organization is violating the collective bargaining agreement between the Union and the Board by locking out the Musicians of the CSO on June 1, 2008 and for failing to bargain in good faith with the Union in an effort to negotiate a successor agreement for next season. A copy of the musicians’ press release detailing the charges is available here. Meanwhile, the musicians continue to produce summer concerts. One upcoming event on July 26, 2008 features former CSO conductor Alessandro Siciliani. For more information about the concert event, visit www.mcsconcerts.org.
