Met Opera, remaining unions reach labor agreements

NEW YORK (AP) — New York's Metropolitan Opera has reached labor agreements with the remaining unions that had expired contracts.

The Met and the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees said Thursday night the groups reaching the tentative contracts include camera operators, box office treasurers and scene artists and designers.

The contracts must still be ratified, as must the contracts reached earlier with unions representing the orchestra, chorus and stagehands.

The agreements averted a lockout. The deadline had been approaching some weeks ago, and a federal mediator came in to try to help.

Details of the contracts haven't been released, and terms vary among the unions. Negotiations had been going on since February.

The Met's season begins Sept. 22.
