Strike Up The Band. Support Musicians at the Civic Light Opera
- Issue: Musicians for the Seattle's Civic Light Opera theater have been seeking a contract to improve working conditions and to standardize wages for orchestra members at the 20-year old theater. 39 of the 48 musicians who have working for CLO over the past three years signed a letter asking CLO to engage in collective bargaining with the American Federation of Musicians. After an initial meeting, Board members refused to meet further with union representatives, and musicians are seeking support from the community to help them win a contract.
