WGA East Membership Votes Overwhelmingly to Ratify Constitution Change


June 9, 2022 | Per Variety:

The membership of WGA East has ratified a change to the union’s constitution, cementing a compromise between traditional TV and film writers and newer members who work in digital media.


The amendment passed overwhelmingly, with 98% of the votes in favor. Turnout was 24%.


The constitutional change creates three “work sectors” within the union: Film/TV/Streaming, Broadcast/Cable/Streaming News and Online Media. Each sector will bargain separately for contracts and vote separately for union vice presidents, though the entire membership will still vote together for the top leadership posts of president and secretary-treasurer.
