Still have questions about last week’s strike against the Fresno Grand Opera? I devoted my Sunday Spotlight column to an expanded discussion of the issue. Here you’ll find the two sides summarized, with comments both from union leadership and the management of Fresno Grand Opera. I include a recap of the concert itself and my take on what to look for in coming weeks. Local 12 of the American Federation of Musicians is still on strike against Fresno Grand Opera. The next scheduled performance is “Showboat” on May 11.
In keeping with the “taking stock” nature of my column, I’m curious what Beehive readers think about the situation after having time to digest it all. Do you support the union’s labor action? Do you side with management? Do you think there will be an acceptable resolution before the next performance?
