Watching the sign language

November 5, 2007 | 10:20 am


Correction: An earlier version of this post incorrectly referred to "Dr. Avalon" as a reality show. It is not.

A sign has gone up at the main gate to the Raleigh Studios lot where strikers are set up. It reads: "This entrance is not to be used by the Employees, sub-contractors, or suppliers of the following production companies: Cara Communications, CBS Productions, David E Kelley Productions, 20th Century Fox Corp and CBS Paramount Network Television."

Essentially, they are making all workers for these companies turn around and enter the lot from another gate while people arriving for Dr. Avalon can come right in. The gate has been declared a nonunion gate and forces strikers to put their signs down. They are not leaving, however.

"It's designed to get the employees angry with us because they can't park where they normally park," said strike captain Craig Sweeny. "It's just a ploy. We drive through this gate every day." The writers for the moment are just hanging around.
