WGA’s rift shifts to L.A.

The National Labor Relations Board has consolidated the Writers Guild of America West and the WGA East’s complaints against each otherand transferred them the NRLB’s Los Angeles office.

Prior to Thursday’s transfer, the WGAE’s complaint was under review in the NRLB’s New York office.

“We continue to believe that it is in the best interests of all entertainment writers for the Council of the Writers Guild of America East to come to the table and talk to the WGAW,” WGAW general counsel Doreen Braverman said.

WGAE officials could not be reached for comment.
