Great day in the morning, people, the writers strike is well and truly over! The membership of the WGA West and WGA East voted to end the three-month work stoppage today, with the yeas coming in at an overwhelming 92.5%.
“Our membership has voted, and writers can go back to work,” announced WGA West president Patric Verrone at a Beverly Hills press conference.
The next step is for WGAW and WGAE members to ratify the tentative deal negotiators reached with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. The membership ratification vote will be conducted by mail and at membership meetings on Feb. 25.
