The Writers Guild of America, East and ABC News have reached a tentative agreement affecting more than 140 writers, producers, assignment editors, promo producers, graphic artists and desk assistants. The three-year agreement provides for 2% increases in pay each year, plus increased contributions to the WGA pension plan. WGAE members will vote to ratify the agreement in the next two weeks.
