The Orange County Musicians' Assn. has filed charges with the National Labor Relations Board against the Los Angeles Rams, alleging unfair labor practices over the football team's use this year of non-union musicians. During the summer, the Rams assembled a band of 22 non-union musicians, including some Cal State Long Beach students. Some of those musicians have said they are being paid $50 per game, about half the union rate and not including additional benefits provided under union contracts.

Three musicians who claim they had verbal agreements to play in the Mozart Camerata for the full 1990-91 season say they were barred from a rehearsal Monday night. Saying that orchestra officials told them they were not hired to play the group's next concerts this weekend, two of the three said Tuesday they will file grievances with the Orange County Musicians' Assn. The third could not be reached.

Cal State Long Beach officials are looking into charges by the Orange County Musicians Assn. that the campus was used this summer to recruit and rehearse a non-union band to play for the Los Angeles Rams. A union band played for Rams home games for the past 10 years, the association said, with members paid about $100 per game, plus an additional $25 for pensions and other benefits.

In an apparent effort to save money, the management of the Los Angeles Rams has switched from union to non-union musicians for home games. Robert W. Stava, secretary-treasurer of the Orange County Musicians Assn., said Rams management broke off negotiations with the union at the end of July when the union refused to cut the size of the existing band from 22 members to 15, which would have saved the Rams about $1,000 a game.
