Strike Aftermath: Strike-breaker Hunt!
All these writers still have "financial core" status in which they pay union dues and are still represented by the Guild. They can't, however, participate in guild elections (either with votes or holding an office) or union activities.
The Association of Motion Picture and Television denounced this move accusing the WGA of violating labor law by "seeking to deny employment to these writers in the future."
Something as hot-button as a strike always has its divisive elements. With the strike over, this whole situation sounds childish. U.S. labor says that the striking members can still be protected by the Union. If the WGA doesn't like that, they should try to change the law rather than posting "witch hunt" letters on their website.
