According to the Writer’s Guild, the WGA and AMPTP have reached a tentative agreement.
“This was made possible by the enduring solidarity of WGA members and extraordinary support of our union siblings who stood with us for over 146 days. More details coming after contract language is finalized,” they said in an online statement.
Hollywood writers have been picketing for higher pay, residuals, rights against artificial intelligence and more.
When the strike was decided, the Guild wrote, “We have not reached an agreement with the studios and streamers. We will be on strike after the contract expires at midnight (May 2nd). [Your] WGA Negotiating Committee spent the last six weeks negotiating with Netflix, Amazon, Apple, Disney, Discovery-Warner, NBC Universal, Paramount and Sony under the umbrella of the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP).”
