The Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press report that talks resumed Sunday and that the musicians had submitted another proposal on Saturday.

The strike began Oct. 4 and has forced the nationally recognized symphony to cancel all of its performances.

Musicians have been putting on independent concerts. Symphony officials claim the organization finished last year with an $8.8 million deficit, and politicians have unsuccessfully stepped in to try to end the stalemate.

The orchestra and its musicians held their first negotiating session since November on Thursday, but a second day of talks didn’t go off as scheduled and each side blamed the other on Saturday.
