Writers Strike update

This from Variety:

WGA members will have the chance to vote on whether to end the strike under an expedited 48-hour voting process, WGA leaders told members during Saturday’s night’s meeting to detail the contract deal just reached with the majors.

That means scribes technically will not be back to work on Monday, as had been widely expected in recent days. However, numerous members attending the meeting – which drew about 3,000 to the Shrine Auditorium — said many people will unofficially be prepping projects and scripts.

The WGA negotiating committee, the WGA West board of directors and the WGA East Council will meet Sunday to formally endorse the contract and set the launch of the 48-hour vote to lift the strike. The ruling bodies are also expected to approve official launching a member ratification vote that would take place over 10 days.

Oh well. What’s two more days after three months?
