WGA Contract Talks in Recess for Two Weeks
Negotiations resume March 4.
The Writers Guilds of America, West and East are pausing negotiations with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, the groups announced Saturday.
"Today the Writers Guilds of America, West and East concluded two weeks of bargaining with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) toward a new Minimum Basic Agreement," said a joint statement from the organizations. "The parties have agreed to a temporary recess for scheduling reasons. Negotiations will resume on March 4th. Neither the Guilds nor the AMPTP will be commenting further at this time."
The talks began Feb. 3 at AMPTP headquarters in Sherman Oaks, Calif. In a letter to guild members ahead of the negotiations, the WGA alleged $60 million in rollbacks for writers were on the table.
