The Writers' Strike is On

Posted on November 2, 2007

The L.A. Times reports that the feared writers' strike is going to happen. Guild members will be informed by email about the exact time the walkout is scheduled to begin.
A strike would destabilize Southern California's signature industry and mark the first time in two decades that writers had walked off the job.

Thursday night's rally of more than 2,000 film and TV writers occurred a day after talks on a new three-year contract with their employers broke down amid disputes over DVD residuals and pay for shows distributed over the Internet.

The union's board of directors will formally ratify the strike plans at a meeting Friday at 10 a.m. at the guild's West Coast headquarters in the Fairfax district.
Complete details about the strike and the timing of the strike won't be available until tomorrow. The strike will have an impact on films, television and late night talk shows.
