Hollywood scriptwriters are currently on strike, which is anticipated to paralyze the audiovisual industry indefinitely. Thousands of writers across Los Angeles and New York have taken to the streets, demanding a fair contract. The Writers Guild of America (WGA) announced the beginning of an indefinite strike after failing to secure a new, more equitable contract with the Alliance of Film and Television Producers (AMPTP). The WGA summoned the “Motive Force of Hollywood” on Tuesday to carry out pickets to put pressure on the big studios outside their facilities in Los Angeles and New York, with slogans like “Paramount listen, we’re in the fight!”, “Whose stories? Mine!!”

The WGA published on its website the requests of its union for the AMPTP, among which the demand for a fair payment of the “residuals,” stands out. The remuneration that the work team receives for the broadcast of their projects. To achieve this, the scriptwriters demand greater transparency from the streaming platforms about the times their work has been reproduced by a user.

Additionally, the AMPTP refused to discuss the regulation of artificial intelligence (AI) in the production of scripts, another important point, and arguably, the most crucial one. The last writers’ strike took almost 100 days, causing significant monetary losses. Therefore, the biggest concern for everyone now is how long this current strike might last.

The scriptwriters’ unanimous demand is for fair treatment and payment for their work. They call for transparency, protection of human labor and fair payment of residuals. These demands are essential to clear the strike and provide a sustainable future for writers in the industry. To support the scriptwriters, people want to show up and encourage their resolve, inviting them to join them on the picket lines at WGA.
