Negotiations Moving Forward with Waco Symphony

September 12, 2022

Negotiations are underway with Waco Symphony, as a one year extension of the orchestra’s previous collective bargaining agreement will soon expire. Beginning last year, the WSO has been experiencing change with the appointment of a new executive director last season, and will be seeing the retirement of its longtime Music Director Stephen Hyde as it engages in a search for a new Music Director.

Local 72-147 has been in talks for an agreement moving forward in this time of change for the company. Musicians serving on the negotiation team consist of Ann Shoemaker, Dwight Anderson and Kyp Green working with Local 72-147 President Stewart Williams. More updates about this negotiation are expected soon.
