After five months, the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and Hollywood studios have reached a preliminary agreement to potentially end the strike that has rocked the entertainment industry.
The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (the group representing studios, streaming services, and production companies) and the WGA made a preliminary deal on Sunday. Once approved by the Guild’s board and members, the strike can end as soon as this week, helping an industry of people return to work.
WGA Strike – What we know
“WGA has reached a tentative agreement with the AMPTP,” the guild said in an email to members. “This was made possible by the enduring solidarity of WGA members and extraordinary support of our union siblings who joined us on the picket lines for over 146 days.”
This strike was 8 days shy of becoming the longest in the Guild’s history. In 1988, members walked on for a whopping 154 days.
This is a great first-step to rebooting Hollywood, but there is more work to be done. Talks between the studios and the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists have not resumed, leaving crew members unemployed.
“SAG-AFTRA congratulates the WGA on reaching a tentative agreement with the AMPTP after 146 days of incredible strength, resiliency and solidarity on the picket lines,” the actors union said in a statement. “While we look forward to reviewing the WGA and AMPTP’s tentative agreement, we remain committed to achieving the necessary terms for our members.”
