(DETROIT) -- The striking orchestra members of the Detroit Symphony announced Tuesday that they would not go back to work unless they were offered binding arbitration from the group's management.
The orchestra announced on Tuesday that the musicians would go back to work without a contract, but they would only return to their music stands on the condition of binding arbitration.
The musicians clarified that they would go back to work immediately if such an offer was made.
The announcement could bring an end to the strike, which began in October. It has forced the management to cancel much of its 2010-2011 season.
