quote " Montreal got into arrears because it made a choice to get into arrears and spend money on other things, including increased strike fund benefits for Montreal Symphony musicians."

Wrong - The MSO strike had nothing to do with the SWD payments in arrears. The monies spend on the MSO strike came from a separate trust fund, not from the regular account. It wasn't a "decision", just some very bad management by the former president and VP. The directors were not aware that something was wrong with the Symphonic Work dues, until the very end of 2006.

Great column.
