Seattle Symphony, musicians reach agreement on new contract

After 15 months of negotiations, the Seattle Symphony and its musicians have reached agreement on a new contract.

The contract, good through August 2015, includes salary concessions for the remainder of the season (but provides salary increases in subsequent seasons), maintaining a 45-week performance season and the filling of vacant positions.

Unlike at several other orchestras nationwide, the negotiations did not involve work stoppages or other unpleasantness.
