WGA Strike: Writers and studios agree to resume negotiations
A joint statement was released late Friday night, reading: "Leaders from the AMPTP and the WGA have mutually agreed to resume formal negotiations on November 26."
Patric Verrone, president of the WGA-West, sent the following email to the WGA membership: "This announcement is a direct result of your efforts. For 12 days I have repeated that a powerful strike means a short strike. ...Now it is equally important that we now prove that good news won't slow us down, either. We must remember that returning to the bargaining table is only a start. Our work is not done until we achieve a good contract and that is by no means assured. Accordingly, what we achieve in negotiations will be a direct result of how successfully we can keep up our determination and resolve."
A lot of this strike has played out in the press, with public sentiment siding mostly with the writers. However, both sides have agreed to a news blackout, stating, "No other details or press statements will be issued."
