Last day of WGA picketing?

Posted on


Strikeresults_l The WGA has notified its membership in Los Angeles via its website that picketing will resume outside of NBC in Burbank today — but it could be for the last time. There’s a strong belief among many writers that the negotiating committee will call for a membership vote on the latest draft proposal at tomorrow’s mammoth meetings planned for L.A. and New York, which could finally bring an end to the labor dispute that has cost thousands of jobs and over $1 billion to the Los Angeles economy. If the membership signs off on the deal that was hammered out a week ago by key moguls and the WGA’s top brass, the union can immediately call an end to the strike and potentially give the greenlight for work to resume as early as Monday.
