What does the strike mean for pre-WGA writers?
Here's how it may impact you and how you can join the cause.
One of the groups hit hardest by the writer’s strike is support staff. These folks had no say in the strike authorization vote and since they’re part of another union, were not advocated for in the WGA negotiations. However, they also lost their jobs without any form of severance once we went on strike.
If you’re part of this group and need financial assistance, check out the Entertainment Community Fund for loans. (Due to the strike, I would contact them directly to explain your situation even if it appears you otherwise wouldn’t qualify.) The WGA is also offering loans. If you’re a WA, PA, or SC who can’t work right now I’m also happy to offer you a complimentary paid subscription to this newsletter, just respond to this email!
So, what does the strike mean for pre-WGA writers?
The good news is that if we do win the majority of what we’re asking for, it will make it easier for support staff to get staffed, and generally improve the lives of pre-WGA writers. Let’s break it down.
