Suspect someone of writing? Call (323) 782-4898

When the WGA issued its strike rules a month ago, the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers responded with information on its Web site showing how to file for financial core status. Under fi-core, a writer gives up full membership in the guild and withholds dues spent on political activities in order to continue writing during the strike. The AMPTP also pointed out that WGA members who go fi-core can’t be disciplined for working during a strike.

That said, strike-breaking is a serious issue for the WGA and its strike rules require members to report any activity in that realm. Discipline for violations of strike can include expulsion, suspension, fines and censure; nonmembers who perform banned work during a strike will be barred from joining the WGA.

WGA West members received an email over the weekend from Dan Wilcox, chair of the newly formed WGA West Strike Rules Compliance Committee and a member of the WGA West’s Board.

The letter, after the jump.
