[If you are a Writers Guild member living outside of NYC or LA and would like to

organize an action in your city, please email lmoutz@wgaeast.org. Actions are

currently being organized in certain cities.]


Contract Captains Needed!

What does a Contract Captain do?

Maintain regular communication with your team about leafleting, picketing, rallies, etc.

Why is this important?

An informed and mobilized membership is key to winning a strong

contract. The more members who have a Contract Captain to keep them

informed, mobilized and working the picket lines, the greater the

impact of our actions.
