Strike is Over

This just in from United Hollywood - an excerpted letter from Patrick Verrone of the WGAw:

Dear Fellow Members,

I am are pleased to inform you that this morning the WGA Negotiating Committee unanimously and unconditionally recommended the terms of the proposed 2008 MBA to the WGAW Board and WGAE Council. The Board and Council then voted unanimously to recommend the contract, and to submit it to the joint membership of WGAW and WGAE for ratification. The ratification vote will take place over the next few weeks by mail ballot and at a special membership meeting. You will receive ballot materials and a notice of informational meetings during the next week.

There is, however, another issue to address: whether to lift the restraining order, and end the strike, during the ratification process. We are asking the members to decide this issue. A vote will take place on Tuesday, February 12, 2008.

A yes vote means you are voting to end the strike immediately; a no vote means you are voting to continue the strike during the ratification process.

It has come to my attention that during the last few days, the link to the Writing Buddy Program has been out of order. The problem has been corrected so any Wavers interested in the WB program, just click on the link in the sidebar and you will be gratified within a few scant hours. The program has thus far been a huge success; several Rouge Wavers have voluntarily had their behinds kindly reminded of deadlines and had to supply proof of their work. We have had nothing but gratitude and accolades. So give it a shot if you're in need of some sweet, cupcake-y pressure to write.
