In response to Wednesday’s article about the new housing shared equity program in the San Francisco Symphony’s (SFS) new collective bargaining agreement (CBA), a number of readers reached out asking about the similar program at the LA Philharmonic I referenced.
It’s a straightforward item in the LA Phil’s CBA, Article 13.K:
Housing Allowance: On regularly scheduled paydays that follow the close of each payroll period during the Term of this Agreement the Association shall pay each Staff Musician a weekly housing allowance as follows, less required legal deductions:
CONTRACT YEAR / WEEKLY ALLOWANCE
2017-2018 / $155
2018-2019 / $215
2019-2020 / $275
2020-2021 / $335
2021-2022 / $400
According to what I’m learning about the new SFS shared equity program, it will be a completely different beast. That’s all I can say for the moment but we’ll cover it in more detail once the information is confirmed.
