iW NEWS | Writers Guild Issues Statement on Contract Negotiations

John F. Bowman, chair of the WGA Negotiating Committee representing the Writers Guild of America, West (WGAW) and the Writers Guild of America, East (WGAE) issued a statement late Thursday regarding ongoing negotiations with the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers (AMPTP). “Our employers are growing and dominate the global entertainment industry. Yet their opening offer would have rolled back our compensation by 50%. Now they decrease the rollbacks to 45% and proclaim that they are truly bargaining. Minor adjustments to major rollbacks do not constitute forward motion,” Bowman said in the statement. “To make a deal, the AMPTP must engage with us on the issues that matter in this negotiation. With that in mind, we will respond to their proposal tomorrow.” [Eugene Hernandez]
