'The Biggest Loser' Strike is Over

'The Biggest Loser'There are no more picket lines for Jillian Michaels, Bob Harper and Alison Sweeney to worry about crossing: 'The Biggest Loser' strike is over.

Crew members from the NBC weight loss reality show walked off set nearly two weeks ago over labor disputes involving insurance benefits and union issues, but according to the Los Angeles Times, an agreement was reached over the weekend.

Crew members will now be allowed to count their hours of work on the show toward obtaining health insurance benefits, a major point of contention during the negotiations.

NBC hired new workers so production on the show could continue while the crew was striking, but Michaels, Harper and Sweeney refused to cross the picket line. They even auctioned off autographed items on EBay to benefit the striking crew members.

'The Biggest Loser' is currently airing its 10th season.

The link to the Auctioned-off items is pointing to an article about Kathy Grffith and Kevin Eubanks.
