But the reactions of Hollywood and writers across the country seem to be mixed!
Some people champion the development, applauding both the WGA and these production companies for making deals outside the AMPTP. They hope similar deals are soon to follow.
Others criticize these deals, predicting they’ll lead to the division of the Writers Guild, the disintegration of the writers’ power, and—ultimately—the loss of everything the WGA is fighting for. If some union screenwriters go back to work, they say, other will become resentful… why should some WGA members be allowed to work and others not? The WGA’s power, they argue, lies only in sheer unity: nobody works until everybody works.
