Monday: Getting back to the nitty gritty

The WGA is returning both to the bargaining table and picket lines on Monday.

It’s the first stab at negotiations since Nov. 4 and the first picketing since the Nov. 20 march and rally on Hollywood Boulevard.

Most of the picketing will take place in three three-hour shifts, with Warner Bros. set for four such shifts with the first starting at 5 a.m.

The WGA East has firmed up details of its events for this week, starting with a Solidarity Rally at noon on Tuesday at Washington Square Park in New York to show support by the city’s labor community with this message — “We’re all in this together, and we demand a fair deal!”

Those expected to attend include Randi Weingarten (United Federation of Teachers), Ed Ott (Central Labor Council), Gary Lebarbera and Dennis Hughes (NY AFL-CIO), Sam Freed (SAG NY President), Richard Masur (former national president of SAG) and WGA East leaders.

On Wednesday, the WGA East is planning to picket from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in front of Time Warner Center /Time Warner Studios – Columbus Circle.

The guild’s also noting that the International Affiliation of Writers Guilds has proclaimed Wednesday as International Day of Solidarity. Demonstrations are planned for Australia, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico and France.
