This is your Guild. We are only as strong as we are united.


The Writers Guild of America, East is an activist organization. We are deeply engaged in building power for writers and creative professionals through our organizing campaigns, supporting pertinent legislation and fighting to win benefits and pay that improve our members’ lives.

This election offers us at least two important insights that will ultimately inform our activism: (a) there is no national consensus about which institutions should wield power (e.g., Wall Street, the Beltway political elite, media conglomerates); and (b) to survive and prosper, we must mobilize our current and future members.

That is why we call on you to sign up to the WGAE’s Activist List and be engaged in union actions.

Join us for meetings to prepare for Minimum Basic Agreement negotiations next year. Join our efforts to organize more sectors of the entertainment industry, like nonfiction television and digital news. Join us in fighting for a more diverse, inclusive and just industry. Join us at events where members come together to discuss topical issues and professional development. Join as we fight for the future.

This is your Guild. We are only as strong as we are united.

Get active.

In Solidarity,

Lowell Peterson
Executive Director
Writers Guild of America, East
