Conference Call | Will the Writers Guild of America Go On Strike?
Writers Guild of America (WGA) members are the driving force behind film and television; they are responsible for creating, writing and producing more than 4,000 episodes of scripted programming each year for network television, basic cable and pay TV networks, and online services like Netflix, Amazon and Hulu.
The WGA’s collective bargaining agreement covering all writing for film, television and digital media in the United States expires at midnight on May 1, 2017. To date, negotiators from the WGA and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP), the organization that represents the entertainment industry’s employers, have been unable to reach agreement on a new contract. The WGA has announced that the membership will vote to authorize a strike.
In a clients-only conference call on Monday, April 24, Chris Keyser, WGA Negotiating Committee Co-Chair and past president of the WGA West, Chuck Slocum, WGA West Assistant Executive Director, and Ellen Stutzman, Senior Director, Research & Public Policy of the WGA West will discuss with MoffettNathanson Media analyst Michael Nathanson the key negotiating points that are holding up a new agreement and the impact a strike could have on the media industry.
Date: Monday, April 24, 2017
