I’m not holding my breath. That DGA deal was a joke. Must have been. But I’m keeping an open mind this time.
I’ve honestly been holding off posting anything about the supposed ‘breakthroughs’ we’ve been hearing about. My Strike Captain has been wonderfully sobering in keeping us rank and file up to date and undaunted. We’re on strike. We’re not going back for a deal that’s less than fair.
That said… let’s see what leadership has to tell us. Huge membership meeting this Saturday in both New York and Los Angeles. I’ll report what I learn… and how much angst it activates in my inner revolutionary’s gut… after I’ve had a change to digest things.
Just, please… media… non-WGA people… industry types… etc…. back the fuck off. If the deal doesn’t work for me, I’m not voting for it and I know many of us feel the same way.
The strike is over when the WGA membership says so.
