Pasadena Symphony Musicians Vote to Authorize Strike


Musicians of the Pasadena Symphony voted by an overwhelming majority to authorize a strike, potentially halting concerts during the popular holiday season. Musicians have been without a contract since September of 2015, when their last agreement expired.

If no agreement is reached, a walkout could happen as soon as this month, potentially putting over 70 musicians out of a job that provides a significant amount of their overall income.

There is no date set for the next round of negotiations, but the musicians remain ready and willing to work with management to try and reach a fair agreement. The Los Angeles Labor Movement is also prepared to support these efforts.
