ARGENTINA – USA & The Right To Strike

(No too Bad; No too Good!)

The Scala Of Milan Orchestra’s  musicians went to strike when Maestro Ricardo Muti was its Director several years ago. – Professor Muti is also  a musician, but he had a different contract.  – As La Scala of Milan’s patrons were there (as the CSO patrons were at the CSO  Theater last night):  Director Ricardo Muti (who is an excellent pianist) played Beethoven, (The Fifth   Piano Concert, if my memory is correct). –  Because the musicians strike, the public didn’t have the concert they pay for, but everyone were delighted by Muti performance, and really happy any way! – As I had to work last night, I did’n got my tickets, so I am not sure if Ricardo Muti play some thing for the patrons of CSO last night, but seems to me they were not as lucky as the Italian Public were. – Nobody hurt Maestro Muti, nor even disagree with him, in Italy!

Last Tuesday, this week, children of Chicago’s  Public Schools went back to classes after 2 weeks of Teacher’s strike.  The Mayor of City of Chicago (Democrat politician, Mr. Emmanuel) is a few weeks away from elections day; so he didn’t stick his neck into the negotiation with the Teacher’s Union.

But when the strike was over, he fired his subordinate the Director of Public Schools, and  went to an School to shot himself a photographs for the Press, with some children, the very first day back to School. Did he apologize? … I didn’t hear any!

The CEO of an Japanese Airline resigned because one of his Airline’s  aircraft crashed, several years ago. The CEO was not the  Safety Director of that Company, he  didn’t  fired the Safety Director,  as he was not a Samurai he either did Harakiri,  but  resigned any way.  Mayor Emanuel blame his failure to someone else, We did not hear any simple apology.

Buenos Aires City (Argentina) hired tenor Placido Domingo to sing with The Teatro Colon Orchestra, for a free popular  “Fiesta” around the Obelisco at Nueve de Julio Avenue. The Teatro Colon musicians went to strike that evening. Buenos Aries’s City Hall, in a hurry  gather many excellent musicians  to replace the Theater Colon Orchestra, in a matter of hours, and the neighbors of Buenos  Aires had their Fiesta with Placido Domingo any way.

I shut this picture, the first week of some January, wile returning home from Buenos Aires by bus. I used to live at the Alto Valle de Rio Negro y Neuquen.  The Valley communicate with the rest of the Country by 4 main roads. The Fruit Employees Union wait for the star of the crop season to go on strike. But they do not only use their right of not to work, they close all out and inn bound traffic, from and to The Valley, to spoil the whole year  work of many small, medium and large farmers. The Government, and The Justice? They looks to other side!.

Dear Chicago Symphony Orchestra Patron,  (www.cso.org/Pageaspx?id=12377

This evening, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra musicians went on strike and the September 22 concert was canceled.

The previous collective bargaining agreement expired on Sunday, September 16, 2012.

Musicians and management had previously agreed to begin the 2012/13 season this week, as contract negotiations that began this summer continued. The first rehearsals and concerts of the season took place as scheduled. However, during Saturday’s meeting, the musicians left the negotiating table and proceeded to strike.

The Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association is committed to working diligently and negotiating in good faith with the Union to achieve a new contract that provides a platform for sustainable jobs with competitive wages, benefits and work rules.

We regret any inconvenience the musicians’ strike causes our audiences and patrons and assure you that the Association remains committed to reaching a fair agreement. Chicago Symphony Orchestra musicians are world class professionals, and deserve every dollar and every benefit offered in this contract. At the same time, we must soundly manage the finances of the Association.

We have been taking thoughtful and innovative steps toward tangible financial, audience and reputational gains. Still, CSO revenues are growing at small percentages per year, while expenses—of which musicians’ salaries and benefits represent the largest fixed costs of the organization—are growing at a much steeper pace. The contract that we offered and that the musicians rejected maintains that delicate balance between how we spend and how we manage our finances, while at the same time recognizing the preeminence of our great Orchestra. The CSO A continues to approach these negotiations constructively, and we remain committed to reaching a fair agreement that will ensure the long-term financial stability of our great institution.

The CSO website, cso.org, will contain the most up-to-date information on the status of future performances. We will notify all ticketholders as soon as possible if there are additional cancellations. I appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to resolve these negotiations with our musicians.
If you have additional questions, please contact the Symphony Center Box Office at (312) 294-3000.

Sincerely,

Deborah F. Rutter

President
Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association

PatAgonica

Soy el Dr. Gastón Alejandro Saint Martin (ARDMS. RVT. RPVI eligible, MD. CCPM). Medico patagónico; me gradué en la UNBA (Universidad Nacional de Buenos Aires, en 1961) Recién graduado y casado fui a hacer mi entrenamiento en la Universidad de Louisville, (UdeL) Kentucky, USA, la mas antigua Universidad Municipal de La Unión; pobre, pero de excelente nivel académico; con una pequeña escuela de medicina. Louisville está en la margen izquierda del rio Ohio (afluente del Mississippi) Elegí a UdeL por estar entre los rio Ohio y Tennessee, que era la zona mas subdesarrollada de La Unión, (cuna de los "Hillbillies") montañeses pobres, poco ilustrados, casi analfabetos pero gente honrada, noble y muy trabajadora; donde era de esperar encontrar problemas de patología medica y socio económicos similares a los de la población rural patagónica indigente. Los médicos residentes de la Universidad de Louisville atendíamos al Louisville General Hospital y al Children’s Hospital of Louisville. Finalizado mi entrenamiento, y al tener yo visa de emigrante, me pude quedar en USA, donde los abogados jueces y los médicos con residencias de entrenamiento completas, teníamos un brillante futuro económico, estabilidad y brillo social. La tentación para quedarse fue muy grande, pero cumplimos mi plan regresando a casa; Argentina (No a Buenos. Aires.) sino a La Patagonia (Gral. Roca, Rio Negro), donde trabajé intensamente, no solo en medicina asistencial sino en política. Para el inicio, recluté un pequeño grupo de médicos argentinos jóvenes entrenados en USA y Canadá con quienes creamos al Instituto Medico del Comahue, el pequeño hospital austral privado pionero en medicina asistencial moderna. Construimos el edificio por esfuerzo propio, y por administración, con la dirección técnica de mi padre (Ingeniero Prospero Saint Martin). Tuvimos muchos éxitos y fracasos. Nos integramos al Colegio Medico de General Roca, donde fui el primer organizador de la primer biblioteca medica patagónica. De nuestros Colegas Veteranos aprendimos la Filosofía Ético Moral Medica Hipocrática) y a ser médicos humanistas, antes que corporativos." Allí, practicando, aprendimos las normas básicas de cortesía entre colegas y pacientes. No fue fácil la convivencia y el pasaje armonico de lo (clásico) antiguo a lo (bueno) moderno, pero ¡lo logramos ... y muy Bien! En el ano 2000/2002 La Anarquía establecida Argentina desde el 10 de Septiembre de 1930 estalló y ya “no pude tolerar al criminal anárquico mamarracho republicano Argentino" que culminó con el "Robo Legalizado" (Google "The Legalized Theft" by Steve Hanke - CATO Instituto and/or Johns Hopkins economist) Como muchos de los argentinos ordenados, responsables, con importante capital de trabajo sin deudas, con algunos ahorros PERDIMOS TODO! Yo no perdí mis edificios, mi casa, mi Consultorio Radiológico) ni mi costoso instrumental diagnostico pero al quedar fuera de corporaciones medicas-hospitalarias corruptas, y fuera de los canales de facturación y cobro ... me encontré despojado de uno de los derechos humanos mas importantes “EL DERECHO A TRABAJAR” , del que depende mi “DERECHO A LA PROPIEDAD” y derecho a de “VIVIR en LIBERTAD” como me de la gana y sin pedir nada a nadie (¡LIBRE ALBEDRIO!) Por ello decidimos volver (ya estando jubilados) por segunda vez a USA. Hoy tengo otra residencia legal en Chicago (Oak Park, 60301) Mi mentor (en USA y Argentina) ha sido el Dr. Rene Favaloro (pionero del bypass coronario), con quien (cada uno por su lado) hemos compartido los mismos dilemas, para decidir volver, y para adaptarnos a esta ANARQUÍA Argentina (ver www.29deJulio.wordpress.com ) – La ANARQUÍA en la que cayó La Republica Argentina el 10 de Septiembre de 1930, fue causado por errores garrafales del GOBIERNO DE LOS ESTADOS UNIDOS DE NORTEAMÉRICA. (Presidente Herbert Hoover (POTUS 31) ...MAS... errores garrafales en la "ACORDADA UNÁNIME de LA TOTALIDAD DE LOS JUECES DE LA CORTE DE JUSTICIA ARGENTINA" ...MAS... errores garrafales del Gobierno del Reino Unido de Gran Bretaña (UK) ...MAS... el error de un soldadito con grado de General y cáncer de estomago Gral. Félix Uriburo) que no se atrevio a desobedecer al Jefe de su jefe cuando le ordenaron "violar a La Constitucio ... "en nombre de ella??) y asi TODOS ELLOS JUNTOS, en un contubernio internacional, por primera vez en la historia de La Republica Argentina depusieron a un Presidente Constitucional, (Presidente Hipólito Yrigoyen) electo dos veces (en periodos NO consecutivos), por el voto popular, y depuesto con la absurda e ignorante excusa (si no fue mentirosa) de ser "ser viejo e inoperante..."
