This just in from the WGA, confirming the pact with David Letterman’s Worldwide Pants:

The Writers Guild has reached a binding independent agreement today with Worldwide Pants that will allow Late Show with David Letterman and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson to return to the air with their full writing staffs. This is a comprehensive agreement that addresses the issues important to writers, particularly New Media. Worldwide Pants has accepted the very same proposals that the Guild was prepared to present to the media conglomerates when they walked out of negotiations on December 7.

Today’s agreement dramatically illustrates that the Writers Guild wants to put people back to work, and that when a company comes to the table prepared to negotiate seriously a fair and reasonable deal can be reached quickly.

It’s time for NBC-Universal to step up to the plate and negotiate a company-wide deal that will put Jay Leno, who has supported our cause from the beginning, back on the air with his writers.

    Someone make the signs. Union rules prevent the writers from making their own. We will march. We will picket. We will shout insults on those that dare to cross the union line. The public will cry Havoc. Is someone putting this on youtube

  2. Concerned Public says:

    The nasty studios have made slaves out of the poor writer. The poor misunderstood union writer cannot purchase health care on their own as other Americans. In fact, we demand, that you hire 1 person for every three writers to make out doctor appointments for us and of course to find our notepads. The dictators of our business are not benevolent and do not take kindly to saying the dog ate my work. The poor writer cannot put up their own money and make their own movies or tv pilots. The risk is too great. The writers are not asking for much. The writers deserve a Tom Cruise contract. They cannot survive on a Reese Witherspoon payout. Somebody has to pay for their mercedes. A 90% government backed guarantee is needed, to keep up the self esteem, of this great union for rejected scripts.

  3. We, the members of the Tire Union says:

    We, the members of the tire union salute our brothers in the union guild. We feel their pain. We only get paid when a tire is sold. But the traveling public drives on our tires every single day and we do not get a red cent as a residual. If you wing your battle could you loan us your union leaders. We salute you the the union worker the backbone of America

    Hi “concerned public” What a great, ironic screen name, wink wink! Definitely better than your other screen name, Jack, which you posted with one post before. You are cheeky! I posted this on another thread, but you’re so fun, I want to re-post it here! I love the game you’re playing — the exaggeration game! I can play it to, watch: You sure are spot on with your definition of “capitalism.” You know what the best capitalism is? Well, since you seem to think capitalism is all about companies being allowed to do anything they want, the best capitalism would be… a monarchy! Wouldn’t that be nifty? We could make Les Moonves, Jeff Zucker, Brad Grey et al kings! Give them crowns and everything! That way, they could REALLY do whatever they wanted — take away health care, eliminate weekends off, the whole nine yards! They could give whips to their minions and any creative talent who dares to ask for a fair deal would just get an ass-whipping! After all, companies should be allowed to do whatever they want, am I right? Come on, Jack, whoops, I mean “concerned public,” doesn’t that sound great? Write me back and let me know ASAP! Looking forward to your next ironic screen name — how about “human being”? That would be a gasser!

  5. Concerned public says:

    The capitalists are oppressing us. We will take to the mattresses if need be. Our voice will be heard. The public is on our side. Please pay your dues on time.

    Hang tough NBC Universal. Hire somebody that wants to write instead of expanding union power
