Until all the i’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed, the strike is still technically on. And today the WGA East has scheduled a large scale rally at the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle from noon to 2 pm.
A special WGA East membership meeting has been called for tomorrow, Saturday, at 2 pm ET in the Broadway Ballroom of the Crowne Plaza Hotel at Times Square, 1606 Broadway (Broadway and 49th Street). According to Deadlinehollywooddaily:
”The WGA governing bodies intend to ‘take the temperature’ and ‘get a sense of the room’ at this time. There’ll be lots of open mike time ‘where people can say whatever they want,’ I’m told. Everyone anticipates these will be very long and very contentious meetings on both coasts.
”On Sunday (not Monday, as some thought), the WGAW Board and the WGAE Council both meet and will have to vote to approve any tentative deal before it goes to a membership vote. So, the WGA’s Negotiating Committee, WGAW Board and WGAE Council all must approve the contract before any decision on a strike can be made.”
