WGA Strike Officially Over…Let’s Dance!

Our strike-beat reporter, Hooper X, will be chiming in with his official report shortly, but the legendary Writers Guild of America Strike is now over. A vote was passed at 7 p.m. today to end it with a 92.5% endorsement. Here’s the statement from WGA West president Patrick Verrone…

“The strike is over,” he said. “Our membership has voted, and writers can go back to work. This was not a strike we wanted, but one we had to conduct in order to win jurisdiction and establish appropriate residuals for writing in new media and on the Internet. Those advances now give us a foothold in the digital age. Rather than being shut out of the future of content creation and delivery, writers will lead the way as TV migrates to the Internet and platforms for new media are developed.”
