Three cheers for ... someone!!! The writer's have voted, and this strike is officially over. Everyone is expected to be back at work immediately (and that means you, Mr. Writer, even though you've enjoyed watching The Biggest Loser: Couples in your pajamas eating peanut butter and ice cream). My only question: So, does Nikki Finke get to go to sleep now? An official WGA announcement went like this:
"On Tuesday, members of the Writers Guilds East and West voted by a 92.5% margin to lift the restraining order that was invoked on November 5th. The strike is over.
Writing can resume immediately. If you were employed when the strike began, you should plan to report to work on Wednesday. If you're not employed at an office or other work site, call or e-mail your employer that you are resuming work. If you have been told not to report to work or resume your services, we recommend that you still notify your employer in writing of your availability to do so. Questions concerning return-to-work issues should be directed to the WGAW legal department at 323.782.4521 or the WGAE's assistant executive director Ann Toback at 212-767-7823."
