Fight the “divide and conquer” tactic, says WGAW board member

With striking writers returning to negotiations Tuesday, WGA leaders are warning their members that companies will try to divide and conquer the guild.

The WGA has sent members an email from WGA West board member Tom Schulman, urging members to stay united in the face of such efforts.

“They are putting us on an emotional roller coaster by raising and lowering our expectations, attacking our leaders, trying to pit the town against us, refusing to move on the issues that matter to us, bragging about their generosity when the opposite is true, fear mongering and claiming we’re going to ruin this industry –- hoping we’ll splinter, lose faith in and attack each other, negotiate against ourselves, and cave,” Schulman wrote.

The entire message follows, after the jump.
