Writers’ strike averted! At nearly 1a PT on May 2, the WGA and management’s AMPTP reached a tentative 3-year film and TV agreement. The deal now goes to the WGA West’s board and WGA East’s council for approval, followed by the guild’s members for ratification. In a statement from the WGA negotiating committee, the guild noted that writers made gains “in minimums across the board – as well as contribution increases to our Health Plan that should ensure its solvency for years to come. And we further expanded our protections in Options and Exclusivity. We also made unprecedented gains on the issue of short seasons in television, winning a definition (which has never before excited in our MBS) of 2.4 weeks of work for each episodic fee.”
