To Our Fellow Members:

On Tuesday, members of the Writers Guilds East and West voted by a 92.5% margin to lift the restraining order that was invoked on November 5th.  The strike is over.

Writing can resume immediately.  If you were employed when the strike began, you should plan to report to work on Wednesday.  If you’re not employed at an office or other work site, call or e-mail your employer that you are resuming work.  If you have been told not to report to work or resume your services, we recommend that you still notify your employer in writing of your availability to do so.  Questions concerning return-to-work issues should be directed to the WGAW legal department at 323.782.4521 or the WGAE’s assistant executive director Ann Toback at 212-767-7823.
