It's looking more and more like there's going to be a strike. At the very least, like the strike authorization is going to be ratified.

Gotta love the AMPTP getting in front of the Guild announcing a ratification, like it's up to them what happens on the other side of the table. Though in negotiations they are the lions and the writers are the lambs, but fucking hubris. Cripes.

@seemaxrun Times changing could mean executives earning less. Perhaps with particular attention to executives who loaded up their companies with debt that now is the excuse for layoffs.

Writers Guild Holds Massive Solidarity Rally With Hollywood Labor Allies — Hollywood Reporter

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/business/business-news/wga-holds-massive-solidarity-rally-with-hollywood-labor-allies-1235479365/

 

That meeting for me was the first ray of light I have seen since this began. I was there for the last strike. I saw what happens during strikes and while this had to happen, I've just been filled with existential dread while it was coming down to the wire and when it began.

This isn't like last time though. Every union in Hollywood just showed up for this. And that, that could give us a chance.

Last night's Los Angeles WGA meeting for me was the first ray of light I have seen in the strike situation. I was there for the last strike. I saw what happens during strikes and while this strike had to happen, I've just been filled with existential dread.

This isn't like last time though. Every union in Hollywood just showed up for last night's meeting. It's not the WGA alone. And that, that could give us a chance.
