INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR BOYCOTT OF OSB RECRUITMENT AUDITIONS IN LONDON AND NEW YORK
The administration of the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra (Rio de Janeiro) is organising recruitment auditions in London and New York, respectively on May 16-18 and May 20-23, 2011, in order to replace unfairly dismissed OSB musicians.
Positions are open in the following sections: violin, viola, cello, clarinet, trombone and piano.
FIM urges musicians around the world to refrain from taking part in these auditions, as it would result in taking the jobs of their unfairly dismissed colleagues.
All FIM member unions are therefore requested to circulate this call to their membership, thus expressing their solidarity with the ongoing struggle of the Musicians Union of Rio de Janeiro, SINDMUSI.
Don’t hesitate to come back to us, should you need any further information about the above.
Yours in solidarity, The FIM Secretariat
International Federation of Musicians
