FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Musicians from the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra voted Tuesday night to authorize a strike. This comes after the musicians rejected a proposed agreement with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra Association over a new labor contract.

Musicians claim that the proposal included pay cuts for the first three years.

The association does not know if those musicians will actually go on strike, as the 2016-2017 Symphonic Series is scheduled to start on Friday night. A date for the strike has not been set. But it could now come at any time.

Musicians are meeting with the association on Wednesday to make another attempt at reaching an agreement. The musicians have already been trying to get a new deal for the past 14 months.
