Striking Hollywood Writers, Studios May Restart Contract Talks
Bloomberg reports that Hollywood writers may restart contract talks with film and TV studios this week, raising prospects for an end to the 11-week strike that has put more than 11,000 people out of work. Writers Guild of America West President Patric Verrone and Executive Director David Young will meet with Disney Chief Executive Officer Robert Iger and News Corp. President Peter Chernin to lay the ground rules for resuming negotiations. The discussions would be the first between writers and the studios since Dec. 7, when labor negotiations broke down over pay for the use of work on the internet.
