WGA: East Sues West

The disagreement about dues-sharing between the Writers’ Guilds West and East has moved a step closer to a courtroom. On Monday, the WGAe submitted a complaint to a U.S. District Court judge stating that it was not obligated to arbitrate its differences with the WGAw despite the arbitration proviso in the Constitution that binds (sort of) the two Guilds together.

The WGAw maintains that the differences between the guilds should be resolved via arbitration. A summit is scheduled in New York for mid-June, but in an email to WGAw members yesterday, President Daniel Petrie Jr. stated that the guild is not optimistic that anything will be resolved.
