Carnegie Hall Strike Is Over
Friday, October 04, 2013
The labor dispute that caused Carnegie Hall to cancel its opening night gala this week has come to an end. The company says it's reached an agreement with the stagehands union.
Under the deal, the union will have limited jurisdiction over Carnegie Hall's new Education Wing that will open next year. That was the sticking point that caused the strike.
It was the first strike in Carnegie Hall's history since it opened in the late 19th century.
Carnegie says all concerts will proceed as scheduled. The New York Pops will take the stage at the Stern Auditorium Friday night.
