And in New Haven, Conn., musicians of the New Haven Symphony orchestra have ended their strike by voting 37-3 on Sunday to approve a three-year contract described as “a good compromise.” It was the second lengthy strike by Connecticut musicians to come to an end in less than a week. Last Thursday, a tentative agreement was reached in the 11-week strike by musicians of the Hartford Symphony orchestra. New Haven musicians will receive a 7%wage increase, raising the base pay per performance and rehearsal to $55 the first year, $60 for the second and $65 for the third year. The contract also calls for about a 10% increase in the number of guaranteed performances.
