WGA votes to strike
The Writers Guild told members this afternoon that a strike would begin at 12:01 a.m. Monday, guild members said.
"This afternoon, the WGAE Council and WGAW Board unanimously voted to call a strike," the union said in its e-mail, referring to the East and West guilds.
"The Writers Guilds will go on strike Monday, Nov. 5th at 12:01 AM. At that time, all Guild-covered work under the MBA must cease. We will be sending more detailed information over the weekend."
