Janos Gereben has received details of the current pay offer:
The SFS administration describes its latest proposal as a “three-year contract that keeps the San Francisco Symphony among the top three highest-compensated orchestras in the United States. Members of the orchestra are currently compensated at a minimum salary that is already higher than those in Boston and New York — other cities with a very high cost of living.”…
The minimum-salary figure provided by the administration as part of its proposal: $165,000 in the first fiscal year, with multiyear increases to more than $177,000 by the end of the contract.
Another figure is “average annual contractual compensation, inclusive of minimum base salary, contractual overscale, seniority, and other forms of compensation,” here offered at “more than $193,000 in the first fiscal year, with multiyear increases to more than $203,000 by the end of the proposed contract.”
Other components of noncontractual compensation bring the total average Symphony musician salary under the proposal to more than $213,000, with multiyear increases to more than $229,000.
