As Craig discusses, the WGA is surprisingly asking for a Strike Authorization Vote right now. That means, as far as I understand, that if we vote for the Authorization, on October 30th we don't have to go on strike but the Board's authorized to drop the strike hammer if they see fit.
You may be wondering where I stand.
(for the humor impaired, I am being dry)
However, if it's strike now or wait for the DGA to fuck us in the spring, then you know which way I'm going. Your mileage may, of course, vary.
