Chicago Symphony musicians on strike

CHICAGO (AP) – Striking musicians at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra are grabbing picket signs instead of piccolos after a lack of progress in contract talks.

The musicians picketed Monday in front of Orchestra Hall, a day after announcing they were going on strike. They say management is trying to reduce their pension benefits after nearly a year of negotiations.

The orchestra acknowledges that retirement benefits are at the center of the dispute. The average annual salary is $187,000.
