LA City Council to the WGA and AMPTP: Settle This Thing

Cityhall Los Angeles City Council president Eric Garcetti has introduced a resolution urging the WGA and the AMPTP to head back to the negotiating table.

As part of the resolution, Garcetti is offering — “free of charge” — L.A. city offices “as a neutral space for the parties to resume discussions.”

The city council — including member Wendy Greuel, a former DreamWorks exec — will consider the resolution at its Wednesday morning meeting (10 a.m., City Council Chambers — Third floor of City Hall).

Considering how much City Hall has played a part in scripts through the years, perhaps a deal there would be fitting.

L.A. officials have reason to push for a swift resolution, as a lengthy strike could obviously hit the city hard. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa earlier offered his services to help with talks, but ultimately wasn’t asked to take part.
