Locked-out musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra will vote Saturday on management's latest contract proposal. A new three-year contract offer management released Thursday would cut musicians salaries' from an average of $136,000 a year under the old contract to $104,500.
The Minnesota Orchestra has made a new contract offer to its locked-out musicians, one that includes bonus money. Management says the offer is its fourth in the ongoing labor dispute. The proposal would reduce base salaries gradually over three years.
Management of the Minnesota Orchestra says its locked-out musicians have let a contract offer expire with no counteroffer. The orchestra's management says the offer expired at 5 p.m. Monday. Management says the union did not respond to the proposal offered to musicians on Sept. 14.
Two years after the American Crystal Sugar Co. lockout and one year after they gave up on returning to work at the nearby Hillsboro plant, three former employees say they’re doing better than they could have imagined.
Minnesota senators removed extended unemployment benefits for workers locked out by employers in labor disputes during a Friday bill debate. The provision was a Democratic response to a 20-month lockout by American Crystal Sugar Co., as well as a pair of Twin Cities orchestra labor disputes.
Locked-out American Crystal Sugar workers will vote again Saturday on a contract they have rejected four times before. After 96 percent of union members rejected the contract in 2011, the union members have voted down the contract in smaller numbers in each vote.
Locked-out American Crystal Sugar union workers will hold a fifth vote on the company’s last contract offer on April 13, according to Gayln Olson, president of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Local 372G in Hillsboro.
