WGA to meet with members in L.A. and New York

February 5, 2008 |  4:47 pm


The Writers Guild of America, West, is hosting a key membership meeting at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at the Shrine Auditorium near downtown Los Angeles to brief striking writers on the status of negotiations with studios and get their reaction to a proposed new contract that’s in the throes of being finalized.

Also on Saturday, the WGA East will hold a general membership meeting in New York at the Crowne Plaza Hotel at 2 p.m. Last weekend, the writer and studio sides agreed to the outlines of a new three-year contract that, if approved by the WGA West board and the East Coast Council, would end the strike that's now in its fourth month.

John Bowman, chairman of the guild’s negotiating committee, sent an e-mail letter to members last night noting that neither the negotiating committee nor the boards would take any action on the contract until after this weekend’s informational membership meetings.
