Hollywood Is At It Again? Labor Strife in Tinseltown
The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers said the offer was worth more than $250 million in additional compensation to members of the guild over the three years of the proposed contract.
The current pact was to expire at 12:01 a.m. PDT Tuesday, but both sides said they would continue to work under the old contract after the deadline passes.
The economic impact of the Writers strike is still being felt in Los Angeles and elsewhere. Another work stoppage wouldn't be helpful at this time.
