Detroit Musicians' Negotiating Committee Says "Vote No"

As Drew McManus points out, both Detroit papers are reporting that the Detroit Symphony musicians' negotiating committee is recommending rejection of management's deal to end the strike.

The Detroit Free Press quotes spokesman Haden McKay, who says that the offer "did not meet our minimum requirements." The Detroit News is saying that the committee felt management pulled a bait-and-switch, agreeing to things on Wednesday night in negotiations, only to leave them out in the agreement they delivered the next morning.
