Negotiations Update: Tentative Agreement

We have reached a tentative agreement on a new 2023 MBA, which is to say an agreement in principle on all deal points, subject to drafting final contract language.

What we have won in this contract—most particularly, everything we have gained since May 2nd—is due to the willingness of this membership to exercise its power, to demonstrate its solidarity, to walk side-by-side, to endure the pain and uncertainty of the past 146 days.

Why We Strike

In June, 2018, our reps relayed that the studio executive wanted us to do some polish notes before putting it in front of the new president of production. To be clear, a WGA signatory company asked us to do free work in violation of the MBA. One of our reps encouraged us to do it...In August, 2018 (two and half years after engaging), we delivered the “official” first draft to the studio. Guaranteed two-step deals and weekly pay are basic minimums screenwriters should be afforded in this business where so much is asked of us to get projects off the ground.
