WGA to studios: Cancel Christmas, we wanna negotiate

The WGA this morning sent a strongly worded email to members this morning in which it challenged the AMPTP to stay at the bargaining table throughout the holidays, if need be. Email also expressed concerns over rumors it’s heard regarding one company’s alleged plans to prolong the strike.

“For one, we’ve heard that one or more of the companies are prepared to throw away the spring and fall TV season, plus features, and prolong the strike,” the WGA statement read.  “Aside from the devastating effect this would have on the unions, workers, and their families in this industry, it would certainly explain the AMPTP’s refusal to put any new proposals, even a bad one, on the table.”   

Oh, snap!

The full text of the WGA statement is on the jump.
