AMPTP open letter accuses WGA of lurching “day-by-day from one tactic to another”

The AMPTP began the week with another blast at the WGA, which today plans to formally request negotiations with the bargaining group’s individual members.

In “an open letter to the entertainment industry”, the AMPTP asserts: “These writers are no closer today to getting their fair share of new media revenues than they were when the strike began.”

According to the AMPTP, the strike’s economic consequences amount to more than $200 million for below-the-line workers; writers, the AMPTP says, have lost more than $115 million.
 
The AMPTP calls on “working writers” to pressure the union to adopt a “reasonable, consistent and practical negotiating strategy.”

The entire letter, after the jump.
