Score ONE for the WGA! ABC FORCED to Honor Original Agreement With Script Writers!
Daytime Confidential's Jamey Giddens has revealed some new information regarding the WGA's agreement with daytime script writers.

"The Guild, after much discussion with the daytime committee, went back to ABC with a three-pronged agreement: 1.) The waiver would only last for one year, after it would be revisited, 2.) the reduced guarantees would be spread equally between the members of the scriptwriting team, so no one writer would take the hit. In other words, based on a team of five scriptwriters—with 20 fewer shows per year—each scriptwriter would have their guarantee reduced by four scripts per year, 3.) as this is a serious pay cut, no more pay reductions would be requested during the term of the waiver."
