iW NEWS | WGA Presidents Announce Tentative Agreement to End 3 Month Strike

By Indiewire | Indiewire February 9, 2008 at 3:35AM

"We have a tentative deal," reported WGAW president Patric M. Verrone and WGAE president Michael Winship, in a letter to Writers Guild of America members today. The complete email message, posted on the United Hollywood blog, indicates that the pact, "creates formulas for revenue-based residuals in new media, provides access to deals and financial data to help us evaluate and enforce those formulas, and establishes the principle that, 'When they get paid, we get paid'." WGA members will gather today (Saturday) at meetings in Los Angeles and New York regarding ratification of the pact and ending the work stoppage that began more than three months ago. "Much has been achieved, and while this agreement is neither perfect nor perhaps all that we deserve for the countless hours of hard work and sacrifice," Verrone and Winship said, "Our strike has been a success."
