Changes on the Board of Directors: We have
had our first meeting with the new board of
directors. I am thrilled to have both Allan Rickmeier
and Bill Andrews on board this year. Allan Rickmeier
is a bassist with the San Diego symphony so it is
very beneficial to the San Diego Symphony and to
Local 325 to have Symphony representation. Bill
Andrews, a freelance bass player, is going to be
able to provide us with much needed computer and
website expertise.
Building Improvements:
In the last couple of
months we have replaced all the carpeting in the
building and had all the boardroom chairs
recovered. Currently, shutters are being installed in
the board room, front office and rehearsal room.
Some other “unseen” improvements will be made to
wiring, etc., to maintain a structurally sound
building.
Streamlining:
We are working on making
membership dues and work dues payable online.
Once the system is in place, we will inform the
membership by e-mail. We will also make it possible
to receive your dues bill as an e-mail, rather than a
hard copy to help further save in printing and
postage costs. Late last year the membership was
given the choice of receiving their copy of the
Sound Post online instead of by mail. We are thrilled
that approximately half our membership elected to
receive just the online copy. Not only have we
reduced our printing costs, but we are doing our
best to be “green”.
Educational Outreach Fund: Please make use of
Local 325’s Educational Outreach Fund. In these
tough economic times, we have the opportunity to
help schools fund educational concerts for their
students. At the same time, you get to create work
for yourself! The fund is run similarly to the MPF
and will pay up to 50% of the cost of the
performance for up to a quintet. This is a wonderful
opportunity to reach out to the schools in your area
and play live concerts for children that may
otherwise never be exposed to high quality live
music. Please contact the office should you wish to
make use of this fund. Thank you to those members
that have already utilized this fund to ensure the
future of live music.
IMPORTANT CHANGE to the next General
Meeting: In an attempt to increase participation at
General Meetings, we are experimenting with
changing the General Meeting to Noon on Mondays
to coincide with the end of our Board of Directors
meetings. We hope that holding these meetings at
Noon will work better for everyone’s schedules.
Also, it will provide those who are interested, with
an opportunity to attend any portion of the Board of
Directors meetings they wish to. A pizza lunch will
be served and lively dialogue is guaranteed. Please
join us on MONDAY, February 8th, at NOON for
our next General Meeting.
Your comments, ideas and concerns are always
welcome and much appreciated. It is through your
direct input that we can best serve you, the
membership. Please feel free to call me directly any

Life Member’s Corner
By Bob Mc Kewen
Every now and then I succumb to a compulsive temptation and treat myself to a heaping
platter of pig’s knuckles in chocolate sauce (YUM!). This not only give me heartburn, but
also weird dreams – most recently, I dreamt about some of the marvelous musical
characters in San Diego’s past…
Who remembers Don and Pete Jacks (Giacalone), who were very active musically about
50 years ago? Or Bill Green holding forth at the Hotel del Coronado for many years as
music director? Vic De Nunzio and Eddie Ramos (saxophone and trumpet, respectively) playing often at the
Kona Kai on Shelter Island? Dick Ryan (a past Local 325 President) gracing the stage at a smoke-filled room
called the Hillcrest Hideaway…
Bart Hazlett’s gang playing for nearly everything at the Sports Arena – circuses, rodeos, ice shows, etc. In
1960 there was a contest for Governor between Pat Brown and Richard Nixon. Both campaign chairpersons
called Bart to provide music for rallies, etc. Bart solved the issue by taking both gigs and issuing the band
reversible vests – blue on one side and red on the other. We were delighted to get the work! (Pat Brown
won…) I don’t think either side caught on to the fact that there was only one band.
Back in the fifties, Bart’s big band back all the grandstand shows at the Del Mar Fair. The era of selfcontained groups with their own bands had not yet happened. Xavier Cugat, holding his Chihuahua and
accompanied by his hypermammiferous Bimbo du Jour was a favorite – gracious and easy to work with.
So many memories! Next time I need to delve into my recent world of dreams; I’ll try oysters with peanut
butter…
Here is a serious alert for all Life Members – let’s face reality, folks, we are all approaching that magic
moment when e will “shuffle off this mortal coil” and join the big band in the sky. Are you sure that your
beneficiary of the Death Benefit Fund is properly identified? Recently we found that not every member’s
wishes were properly recorded at the Local – when you get a chance, check with Claudia if you think there
should be a change to your beneficiary – eschew obfuscation!

SECRETARY-TREASURER/BUSINESS REPRESENTATIVE’S REPORT
The beginning of 2010 finds the Local occupied with the renegotiation of collective bargaining agreements
with the Old Globe and the La Jolla Playhouse theaters. We are still involved with negotiating a successor
agreement with Orchestra Nova San Diego (formerly the San Diego Chamber Orchestra). What we are
presently experiencing with both the Nova and the Old Globe negotiations (and presumably with the
upcoming La Jolla Playhouse negotiation) are steadfast proposals from the respective managements that
wages and all ancillary cost items attached to wages be frozen for the duration of the new agreements (the
Union’s proposals call for our Local’s standard three (3) year agreements). Wage freeze proposals by
Employers are being presented in labor negotiation tables across the country in all industries. The cause is
attributed to the general state of the current American economy. While the Union and our player negotiating
committees are aware of the economy’s present state of affairs (one management person curtly asked us at
the negotiating table if we “read the paper?”), Employer proposals that ask to freeze our musicians’ wages
for the entire duration of multi-year contracts are generally unacceptable. The Union and the Players’
Committees are hard put to endorse wage freeze proposals for ratification by our various musicians’ pools.
Our wage proposals call for modest gains. We are mindful of the present economy’s impact on the
Employers’ income streams which are driven primarily by third party donations and ticket revenue. One
recognized strategy we employ when engaged in negotiations where progressive staggered percentage
wage increases present formidable challenges to the Employer is to present overloaded proposals on other
subjects of bargaining such as pension rates, doubling rates, Principal premium pay, guaranteed number of
services, guaranteed musician complements, musician substitute policies, ample advance notice of changes
to scheduling dates and times of services, addition of services, cancellation of services, etc. Musicians derive
direct and indirect economic benefits from advances in these areas. We may not be able to realize sizable
wage increases in these negotiations; however, we endeavor to compensate for this shortfall by negotiating
balanced agreements which attain advances in the foregoing subjects of bargaining. Assisting President
Glasson and me on the Old Globe negotiation are Player Committee Chair Jeff Dalrymple, Steve Dillard and
Mark Shapiro – many thanks for their many hours of commitment and dedication. The Nova negotiation has
been a long and difficult one. Assisting here are Player Committee Chair Pat Pfiffner, Andrea Altona and
Linda Piatt – many thanks for their patience, persistence and perseverance. The La Jolla Playhouse Players’
Committee will be duly represented by Steve Dillard, Mark Shapiro and John Rekevics.
Life Member BERT TURETZKY (bass) received recognition (among many other awards) in the New York jazz
periodical, All About Jazz, for his CD recorded at member Rick James’ RAJ Studio. The CD is entitled San
Diego Session. Bert received honorable mention. Life Members GARY LEFEBVRE (tenor/alto saxes) and
JACK COSTANZO (conga) were featured musicians at a Stan Kenton alumni extravaganza held at the Four
Points Sheraton at LAX in Los Angeles this past October. Gary and Jack were joined by many other notable
musicians in the world of jazz. BENNY HOLLMAN once again lead his combo for this past season’s San Diego
Charger home games and at the playoff game against the New York Jets.
