Last week kicked off the first week of the Writers Guild strike, and-- as we head into Week #2-- the picketing promises to get more fierce. Here's the latest update from the WGA on picket times and locations. Please note that daily picketing shifts have changed from 9-to-5 to the following unless noted otherwise:
6AM – 10AM
