Duluth-Superior Symphony Ratifies Two-Year Agreement

The musicians of the Duluth-Superior Symphony Orchestra (DSSO), members of Local 18 (Duluth, MN), ratified a two-year agreement that runs from September 1, 2020 through August 31, 2022. The agreement includes a pay freeze and clarifications to previously ambiguous contract language. A new section provides flexibility for outreach performances.

In addition, a one-year COVID-19 side letter was negotiated that suspends the attendance requirement for the musicians. It also provides for short notice change of repertoire and/or cancellation of programs resulting from federal and state guidelines regarding the pandemic.
