The latest reports from Fort Worth indicate that management will not be implementing its "concessionary" contract, a move originally intended to take place on Monday the 25th. This has been gleaned from yesterday's Star-Telegram, which is now mysteriously nearly hidden behind a paywall. The news has not been confirmed by any other sources.
Neither side has offered any definitive comment on the issue. It seems more than a bit strange that CEO Amy Adkins has remained mum.
I suppose that odder things have happened.

In other Texas news, Dallas Symphony Conductor Jaap van Zweden has been appointed the next Music Director of the New York Philharmonic. He is best known (or loathed) for his meticulous and demanding rehearsal style. While this seems an "out of left field" choice, may van Zweden is just what the NYPO needs.
