Striking Hollywood Writers Could Meet With Studios As Soon As August 4 To Resume Negotiations

Hollywood writers have been on strike since May, but now the writers’ union and representatives from major studios are seemingly finally going to meet again to resume talks.

The Writers Guild of America has strongly suggested that it will meet with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) this Friday, August 4, to dig back into negotiations.

The WGA negotiating committee said it was the AMPTP that reached out to request a meeting, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The WGA has not officially confirmed this, however. As of today, there is no meeting officially set between the WGA and AMPTP.

“We’ll be back in communication with you sometime after the meeting with further information. As we’ve said before, be wary of rumors. Whenever there is important news to share, you will hear it directly from us,” the WGA’s negotiating committee said in a note to members.

AMPTP represents major Hollywood studios like Netflix, Warner Bros. NBCUniversal, Paramount, Apple, Amazon, and more.

The writers are seeking, among other things, residuals based on viewership, minimum staffing numbers, and regulations on the use of artificial intelligence. The AMPTP has said the minimum staffing issue is “incompatible with the creative nature” of Hollywood and that AI “requires a lot more discussion.”

Actors are on strike, too, and a spokesperson for SAG-AFTRA said the union is “ready, willing, and able to return to the table at any time” to resume negotiations.” SAG-AFTRA says it has not heard from AMPTP since July 12.

This is the first time since 1960 that unions representing writers and actors have been on strike at the same time. The SAG-AFTRA strike began during the London premiere of Oppenheimer, and actors walked out of a screening when the strike was called.
