MOSCOW, December 20. /ITAR-TASS/. The administration of Russia’s Bolshoi Theatre is planning to sign a collective agreement with theatre employees.
“A meeting of delegates that took place at the Bolshoi Theatre’s new building on December 19 agreed that a collective agreement was necessary,” Bolshoi’s spokesperson Katerina Novikova told Itar-Tass on Friday. She also said that a conciliatory commission would work at the theatre for the next two months.
“The commission will consist of 20 people: both the work collective and the theatre administration will nominate an equal number of 10 people. The commission is expected to vote for the nominees by secret ballot on Tuesday, December 24.
Vladimir Urin, the Bolshoi Theatre’s new general director, announced plans to conclude a collective agreement contract with the staff immediately after his appointment in July 2013. He hopes that it will prevent people from making internal conflicts public. The administration is also planning to sign new contracts with the artists who are going to vote for the terms of their contracts themselves.
