The AMPTP’s “Fact Sheet” — or, six not-so-easy pieces

Talks between striking writers and the majors have collapsed with no indication of when — or whether — they’ll resume.

The AMPTP issued a statement early Friday evening announcing that talks had broken off, listing a half-dozen areas in which it will not make a deal with the WGA. 

The move came at the end of a day of dueling news releases, which saw each side blame the other for the lack of progress at the negotiating table. As of 7 p.m. PST, the WGA had not responded officially to the announcement.

The AMPTP has laid out six areas of disagreement in a “fact sheet” distributed along with its press release. That means for negotiations to resume, the WGA would have to back off on issues related to all of those areas before negotiations can resume. 

The “AMPTP Fact Sheet,” after the jump.
