As the resumed contract talks head into their second day, WGA leaders are urging members not to break out the Champagne — yet.
In an e-mail message sent to members late Monday night,the WGA West board of directors discussed the surveys (including Variety’s) that show public support for the writers while sounding a supportive note of caution:
“We continue to win tremendous support from across the nation and our own industry. You’ll be hearing more about this in the days to come. But this is no time to be over-confident. We are at a critical juncture and must not lessen our resolve. Returning to the negotiating table is a beginning, not the end. If we are to succeed it is because we — all of us — keep the pressure on.”
The full message, after the jump.
