FMCS Statement on the Labor Negotiations Between the New York Metropolitan Opera and Unions
Release Date: 8/11/2014

The U.S. Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS), announced today that the report of the independent analyst brought in to review the Metropolitan Opera’s finances was nearing its completion. Negotiations between the Met and the musicians (Local 802 of the American Federation of Musicians) and the chorus and other members of the American Guild of Musical Artists (AGMA) will resume this week. The Met has announced a new deadline of Sunday, August 17th for the completion of an agreement.


Due to the highly sensitive nature of these discussions, FMCS, consistent with its practice, will have no further comments during this period.
