The Santa Rosa Symphony Board of Directors has ratified a new five-year collective bargaining agreement with the Musicians Union Local 6 of the American Federation of Musicians, through June 30, 2024. The new contract calls for increases in base pay ranging from 2 to 3 percent annually for rehearsals and concerts, plus increases in minimum guaranteed number of services, pension, and other areas of musician compensation. “I deeply appreciated that our negotiations with the Union leadership were collaborative, professional and respectful, resulting in a five-year contract that will benefit both our musicians and the organization overall,” said President and CEO Alan Silow. Music Director Francesco Lecce-Chong said, “Beginning my first full season here, I am delighted that we have a contract settled for another five years, allowing us to focus solely on creating great music that matters for our audiences.”
