WGA & AMPTP Set To Restart Talks Next Week

September 15, 2023

(Updated with WGA statement) The writers and the studios are set to get back around the negotiating table. The AMPTP revealed Thursday that the two parties are “working to schedule a meeting next week.”“On Wednesday, September 13, the WGA reached out to the AMPTP and asked for a meeting to move negotiations forward. We have agreed and are working to schedule a meeting next week. On August 11, there was an initial counter offer from the AMPTP and the WGA offered counterproposals on August 15. On August 22, after a suddenly called tense meeting by CEOs with WGA brass, the AMPTP released details of that offer in an ultimately unsuccessful attempt to go around guild leadership to members.
