WGA Reaches Tentative Agreement with AMPTP

Last night, the Writers Guild of America got some news that they’ve been waiting for since May. 

After 146 days of striking and a week of positive looking negotiations, the guild reached a tentative deal with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. The deal came late yesterday, as they were finally able to come to an agreement on how to handle AI. That is something that’s been one of the biggest sticking points throughout.

WGA's statement to it's members.

“We have reached a tentative agreement on a new 2023 MBA, which is to say an agreement in principle on all deal points, subject to drafting final contract language,” the WGA told its members. 

Next up, the WGA negotiating committee will vote to see “whether to recommend the agreement and send it on to the WGAW Board and WGAE Council for approval.” That vote is slated to take place on Tuesday.

So while it’s not written in stone, it looks like the end is definitely imminent. This bodes well for the SAG strike, which has not met with anyone from the studios yet to negotiate. Now that the WGA strike may have been wrapped up, we can only hope the same can soon be said for SAG and everyone can get back to work!
