The Metropolitan Opera notified union members that the famed opera house will lock out its union employees if union and management officials fail to agree to a new collective bargaining agreement.  The current contract is set to expire at the end of this month.  Union employees were advised in a letter that they should prepare themselves for a work stoppage beginning August 1st if the parties are still at odds.

The parties have been butting heads over a new CBA for some time.  The Met claims that it has to cut costs to remain viable.  The union counters that poor management decisions have caused the opera house’s budgetary issues.
