Musicians’ spokesman Haden McKay tells the Detroit Free Press that Slatkin “showed a lot of understanding” and vowed to be a “positive force” during the meeting Sunday night. The Free Press first reported the meeting Wednesday.
The Detroit News reports Thursday that Slatkin said in an e-mail the “fact finding mission” had been his idea and that it was necessary to “understand both parties.” Slatkin did not want to speak with negotiators.
Management implemented a 33 percent base pay cut in the first year of the new contract. Musicians had offered a 22 percent reduction.
