Fox lot braces for tomorrow’s big rally

Foxlogo An email just sent out to Fox lot employees:

Please be advised that The Writers Guild of America will be conducting a large strike rally with between 2-4,000 participants outside the Fox Studio on Friday, November 9 from 10:00AM until 12:30 PM. It is also possible Avenue of the Stars will be closed from Pico to Olympic during this time period. Rallies such as this are considered normal when a union is on strike. We anticipate the WGA will continue hosting rallies such as this at other studio locations in the weeks to come.

If there are large gatherings of people around Lot or Plaza entrance gates, please remain calm and courteous as you enter the facility. We fully expect entrances to remain open, however, carpooling is highly encouraged due to potential traffic concerns.

If you are blocked from entering the Studio Lot, or if you feel threatened, do not attempt to enter and call Fox Security for assistance. If you are an employee and are delayed, please call your supervisor. If you are unable to reach your supervisor, call your Human Resources partner for guidance.

Please remember that only authorized spokespersons may provide public statements about Company matters, or may initiate contact with members of the media about Fox matters. If you are contacted by any member of the press, you must immediately refer that individual to Julie Henderson in Corporate Communications.

What’s the parking situation going to be like tomorrow? Most picketers will probably check out the Westfield Century City mall first; others, the nearby residential streets. Perhaps a few CAA clients can pull off a parking spot there. Any word of WGA-sponsored shuttles, or other transportation options?
