Writers– and employees of all stripes– unite!

Hey, folks–

Just wanted to invite you all to an important event tomorrow… it concerns not only Hollywood’s writers, but employees everywhere!

Join WGAW President Patric M. Verrone, WGAW members and the Los Angeles Federation of Labor as Los Angeles workers fight for the Employee Free Choice Act.
Patric will be addressing a crowd that is gathering to tell Senator Dianne Feinstein that she should support the Employee Free Choice Act.  If the act passes, it will greatly help reality writers, animation writers, alternative writers, and thousands of other employees– writers and otherwise– who aren’t currently able to get health care, fair wages, or other standard working conditions!
This historic piece of pro-worker legislation will dramatically change workers right to join the union of their choice without employer interference, and could help writers in reality, animation, videogames and other genres gain Guild-coverage.

    Legislation that will permit unions to force people to unionize even if they don’t want to is "Free Choice" only by very Orwellian standards.
