United Teachers of Dade Stewards Express Support

Mr. Heuer,
I regret to inform you that my wife and I choose not to renew our subscription with the Florida Grand Opera next year unless you reach an agreement with your orchestral musicians. As elected representatives of United Teachers of Dade (AFL-CIO) at our respective schools, we find any activity to stifle the rights of your employees to organize deplorable. I also intend to contact our organization to see if we may provide any further support and assistance in this matter.

Florida Orchestra Expresses support

Dear Musicians of the Florida Grand Opera,

This is to declare my support for your position in your right to collectively bargain with union representation.  I and my colleagues in the Florida Orchestra applaud you for your strength and courage in holding your ground.  You each know (many from recent personal experience) the importance of maintaining collective bargaining rights in the state of Florida, where the constant effort to errode collective bargaining has never been more evident. Keep up the good work.  We are following your fight and standing behind you.
