Hollywood writers reach agreement with studios, streamers to end strike

Hollywood writers, studios, and streaming services have reached a tentative agreement that would end a months-long strike, the Writers Guild of America told its members Sunday night.

Hollywood actors join screenwriters on strike

KAtie Kilkenny for The Hollywood Reporter:

After several long consecutive days of negotiations, the Writers Guild of America and the labor group representing studios and streamers have reached a tentative deal on a new contract in a major development that could precipitate the end of a historic, 146-day writers’ strike.

The Writers Guild of America emailed strike captains the news on Sunday night, and shortly after, its negotiating committee informed all members. “We have reached a tentative agreement on a new 2023 MBA, which is to say an agreement in principle on all deal points, subject to drafting final contract language,” the latter message stated. “We can say, with great pride, that this deal is exceptional – with meaningful gains and protections for writers in every sector of the membership.”

Specifics of the deal affecting around 11,500 WGA members weren’t available as of press time, though they will emerge in the next few days as the union seeks to sell its members on the pact… Now, it’s up to the WGA’s members to determine whether the deal satisfies the workplace issues that their peers have been raising for months. All eyes are on the union’s ratification vote for the deal, the date of which has not yet been announced.

    1. So you advocate no justice, or no multimedia, or both?

      You really should consider selling your TV & Apple stuff, since you hate everything it does for you. You obviously refuse to accept that other people have different experiences and points of view that are just as valid as yours. Rather than focusing on positive experiences in your life and sharing those with others, you have always been hellbent on labeling the actions of others. Hate to tell you the obvious buddy, but you’re a major pollutant on this forum.

      I hope the Hollywood workers successfully kill off AI scripts and lame CGI, pathetic “reality TV” crap and political entertainment masquerading as news, and revisionist history/sci fi garbage. They need to get back to producing reality-based educational and informative and entertaining programs for people with an IQ higher than sherm’s age. With plenty of justice, please.

        1. Exactly right, Sherm66. When they can’t bring facts to win an argument, the typical obfuscation, deflection and personal attacks dominate. You LOSE Medium Rarely Right…

  1. In the end this just seems like another petty attempt for relevancy by blackmailing the studios to release the paltry streaming numbers, which will only result in the writers settling to getting more money, while the studios continue to manipulate the popularity of their woke streaming shows, so the ideologue writers can continue to ruin everything with predicable takes, bad writing, and lack of imagination.
