Baltimore Symphony Orchestra reaches 1-year tentative deal

Musicians with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra could soon return to the stage after reaching a one-year tentative agreement with management.

The Baltimore Sun reports a vote to ratify the contract has been scheduled for Monday. If approved, the symphony could begin performing as early as next week.

The newspaper reports details of the contract were not released Saturday, when the performers’ union and management reached the deal.

A contract approval would put an end to a 13-week work stoppage. The 77 musicians have refused to rehearse or perform without a contract following a summer-long lockout they call illegal. They filed a complaint earlier this month with the National Labor Relations Board alleging unfair labor practices.

The newspaper reports performances could begin Friday at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall.
