The folks at soundnotion.tv hosted a discussion with Drew McManus and myself on the subject of substitute pay and how it was handled in last year’s Minnesota Orchestra settlement. The discussion was moderated (very well, I thought) by David MacDonald and Sam Merciers. It can be watched on YouTube here.
I felt the discussion covered most of the salient points. Rather than write a summary about it, go read Drew’s at his website adaptistration.com. He links to a follow-up audio discussion as well as both his posts and mine on the subject.
