Do You Agree With the Decision Not to Picket the Grammys?


The striking Writers Guild of America voted yesterday not to picket the Grammy Awards. In a message to members, the WGA president wrote:

Members of the American Federation of Musicians face many of the same issues concerning compensation in new media that we do. In the interest of advancing our goal of achieving a fair contract, the WGAW Board felt that this gesture should be made on behalf our brothers and sisters in AFM and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists.

As reader elocin pointed out, there's a lot more than awards shows at stake in the strike. So, do you think the WGA was right to let the Grammys go forward without disruption? Or should the union have continued to make its point by threatening to picket, like it did for the People's Choice Awards and Golden Globes?

I think the decision not to picket is a good one, especially, as the WGA pointed out "members of the American Federation of Musicians face many of the same issues concerning compensation." It's a nice show of consideration and solidarity. And I'm glad there will be a red carpet!

i think that music is in a different realm so that it makes sense sort of about the decision. i'm just tired of all the picketing to begin with. just come to an agreement already.

I think that when a film wins a golden globe or an oscar, that films producers profit because it increases the film's box office. (The american public watches the award shows, and then goes to see the movies that win). By not allowing those award shows to go on, the writers are keeping money from the pockets of the people they are negotiating with. It isn't the same with the grammys. So there is no reason to picket.

I don't really think they should picket any, because they are preventing talented people from getting awards they deserve, but especially not the grammys! Music is unrelated to this whole hot mess!
