Writers strike – Writers to vote on proposed deal

A slight change to the previous reports – the striking Writers Guild of America members won’t be returning to work on Monday, but will instead be voting on whether to accept the proposed “tentative deal”. The Underwire blog on the Wired Blog Network say the writers are “most likely heading back to their keyboards by Wednesday” and that “writers will vote on the contract within the next two days”. Writers Guild of America members heard the deal in a Los Angeles meeting yesterday. The Associated Press reports “about 3,500 writers packed the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles to hear from union leaders about the proposed deal that was finalized just hours before meetings were held on both coasts by the Writers Guild of America” and that “Hollywood writers on Saturday gave resounding support to a tentative agreement”.
