DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Symphony Orchestra has submitted a new contract proposal as the musicians’ strike reaches the four-month mark.

The Detroit News reports Friday that the proposal includes a stipulation that the musicians must respond by Feb. 11. Details weren’t released.

Musicians’ spokesman Haden McKay says the players want to find a resolution to the strike.

Teams representing management and musicians met last week for the first time since November, but those talks broke down as each side accused the other of not adhering to a three-year, $36 million proposal made in December by then-Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm and U.S. Sen. Carl Levin.

They were trying to help end the strike that began Oct. 4.
