The Minneapolis City Council on Friday asked the musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra to resume talks to resolve contract disputes.
The Minnesota Orchestra has been locked out since they rejected a contract offer on Oct. 1 that would reduce the minimum salary by 32 percent.
The locked out musicians said they want to attend the orchestra board meeting on Monday but the board chairman and CEO both say they have not yet received the musicians' request to do so, the Star Tribune said.
Minnesota Orchestra musicians held a rally at Peavey Plaza for the one-month anniversary of the lockout on Thursday, according to MinnPost.
Concerts have been cancelled through Nov. 25.
