Writers Guild of Canada Members Have Voted

The Writers Guild of Canada (WGC) announced on Thursday night that 96.5 percent of its eligible members voted to authorize a strike if a new deal with the Canadian Media Producers Association (CMPA) isn’t reached. The first time this has happened in the WGC’s 33 year history.

Negotiations, ongoing for six months, focus on improved compensation, protections against AI technologies, and minimum staffing in writers’ rooms for domestic TV series. The concern is that evolving AI could replace human jobs in writing and acting. The WGC represents 2,500 English-language screenwriters, while the CMPA represents 400 producers nationwide.

We’ll be sure to update everyone once we learn more.
