WGA Bosses Continue to Urge Caution
By John Scott Lewinski February 05, 2008 | 3:19:57 AMCategories: WGA Strike
Though so many in Hollywood are desperately hoping the Writers Guild of America strike will end soon, the mood throughout the industry can at best be called cautiously optimistic -- with the emphasis on "cautiously" growing every day.
The queen of strike coverage, Nikki Finke, did her typical yeoman's (yeowoman's?) job of assembling the facts and the players. It's obvious that there's wrangling between the guild negotiators and its governing board.
Now, I received this from my WGA contacts. It's the latest official update sent from the WGA's top dogs to the guild's membership:
While we have made important progress since the companies re-engaged us in serious talks, negotiations continue. Regardless of what you hear or read, there are many significant points that have yet to be worked out.

In order to keep members abreast of the latest developments, informational meetings are being planned by both Guilds for this weekend – details to be announced. Neither the Negotiating Committee, nor the West Board or the East Council, will take action on the contract until after the membership meetings.

As the talks proceed, never forget that during this period it is critical for us to remain on the picket lines united and strong. We are all in this together.
