Hollywood Screenwriters Hold Historic Strike for Better Wages and Conditions: Effects on Entertainment Industry and Emergence of Union Struggles

May 8, 2023

No Comments More than 10,000 Hollywood screenwriters are holding a strike for better working conditions, which has paralyzed the entertainment industry. Television networks and streaming platforms have already begun to suspend their programs. By Gonzalo Fiore Viani for The dye On May 2, a strike began by the Hollywood Writers Guild (Wristers Guild of America West), which brings together more than 11,000 writers from films, radio, television, and streaming services. The claim is for better wages and working conditions, after failed negotiations with the main platforms, such as Netflix, Amazon, Apple, Disney, Warner Bros. Discovery, NBC Universal, Paramount Plus and Sony, united under the Alliance of Film Producers. and Television (AMPTP). This is something historic, since it is the first measure of strength of these characteristics during the streaming era. The previous strike had been in 2007, it lasted more than 100 days and generated delays in movies and series, as well as millions in losses in the industry. This time, we will have to wait for how long the protest lasts, but everything indicates that the productions of the platforms will also be put on hold and delayed indefinitely. The writers union demands an extra 600 million dollars for the writers, and improvements in the employment contracts, since Platforms increasingly work for minimal wages and for short periods of time. In turn, it requires that limits be placed on the use of artificial intelligence tools, such as ChatGPT. Negotiations between the union and the companies took place for six weeks, but did not come to fruition. Those who are in charge of the scripts are mainly looking for better conditions and a compensation service. Much is said and discussed that the rise of streaming services has a negative impact on their earnings, since, for example, on television, writers are usually paid per episode. In the pre-streaming era, shows were around 22 episodes long, but now they’re between 10 and 13. The writers of the platforms, in addition, are paid lower minimums than their television counterparts, something that was established when streaming was just beginning, but that does not correspond to the numbers that the industry currently generates. In principle, the late shows newspapers will be the first affected, because the gags and jokes are written practically every day, so shows like those of Stephen Colbert or Jimmy Fallon, with huge audiences, were temporarily taken off the air. The series or the movies have other times, and the scripts of what has to be filmed are already written. However, they will also be delayed because the actors and actresses may not be willing to film in the middle of the strike. Union struggles linked to entertainment companies, but also to technology companies, are slowly beginning to emerge in the midst of a fragmented economy and a society that cannot find answers to a crisis that seemed unthinkable a decade ago. For example, Amazon workers have been denouncing poor working conditions for a long time, which is why they decided to join a union, despite the opposition of the company’s managers. As of April 1, 2022, Amazon Union Labor became the first company union to be recognized by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). The union had already been founded in April 2021 by activists Chris Smalls and Derrick Palmer, in Staten Island (JFK8), New York. At the time, even President Joe Biden congratulated the union and his press secretary, Jen Psaki, said the national government was “glad to see workers make sure their voices are heard.” Psaki added that Biden himself “strongly believes that every worker in every state should have a free and fair option to join a union.” Amazon asked the NLRB to hold new internal elections, since, according to the company, the elected unionists “intimidated employees” and “distributed marijuana in exchange for support and votes.” However, this was rejected by the Board. Chris Smalls is an unusual union leader for the United States and is seen as a man of the “radical left” by his detractors. Afro-American, linked to the long and historic struggles of this group, vindicates the actions of the Black Panthers during the 1960s and 1970s, but also demands an end to the blockade of Cuba, photographs himself with portraits of Che Guevara and maintains an aesthetic that refers to the gangsta rap of the nineties, with Tupac Shakur -whom he usually quotes on his Twitter account- as one of his main references. Smalls’ life trajectory says a lot about the current situation that a large part of African-Americans are going through in their country. The union leader attended a community college in Florida, but after one semester, he decided to return to New York to study sound engineering at the Audio Research Institute. He dropped out of school and began making music as a rapper, eventually touring briefly with Meek Mill. However, he gave up his music career to support his children, working a series of jobs at Walmart, Home Depot, and MetLife Stadium. , from 2012 to 2015. As he said in different interviews, his friends tell him that his voice was destined for something else. He also worked in warehouses at FedEx and Target before joining Amazon in 2015. “I’m not saying I’m gonna change the world, but I guarantee that I will spark the brain that will change the world.” Tupac Shakur nephew of our beloved Assata Shakur 🇨🇺 ✊🏽 pic.twitter.com/ROHgPflIrp
