WGA Members Have 48 Hours to Vote on Deal

Here's the latest on the writers strike meetings that have taken place today:
Nearly 3,000 people attended the L.A. meeting this evening, the result of which was that WGA members will have the chance to vote on whether to end the writers strike under an expedited 48-hour voting process.

So, basically the WGA members were presented with a deal and will have 48 hours to vote on whether or not the deal is acceptable. According to Variety, "The WGA West board of directors and the WGA East Council will meet Sunday to formally endorse the contract," and from there the 48-hour ratification process will begin.

I'll keep you updated as I learn more, but until then, as always, fingers crossed!

In interviews, most writers seem to be pleased with the deal; let's hope the vote is a favorable one. Fingers crossed!

i agree - i hope that they do decide to vote for the deal. i think that it's about time for them to agree to something since it's been so long since they were at work. i don't know the details of the negotiations - but i'm keeping my fingers crossed that it was something that the writers union wanted so this could all end

Yay! I hope they accept it so we can have our shows back and all the people out of work in Hollywood can go back to work.
