In early April 2008, about a month and a half after the end of the strike, the Writers Guild of America, East filed a complaint against ABC television and Corday Productions for alleged violation of an end-of-strike agreement. The legal basis for the complaint was that ABC and Corday continued to use strike replacement authors for the soap operas All My Children and Days of Our Lives, rather than allowing the original authors to return to work after the strike ended.  Your negotiating committee has decided to submit the interim agreement for approval by the WGAW Board of Directors and the WGAE Board before the members are ratified. The WGA and IATSE have a persistent disagreement over the union that should represent the animation writers.  On January 14, 2008, the WGA announced two additional secondary agreements, one with Media Rights Capital, a production company that works on both features and television, and the other with Spyglass Entertainment.   On January 25, 2008, another sub-part was completed; WGA and Marvel Studios have signed a full interim agreement.  After the DGA`s announcement, John Wells, the world`s leading land producer and former WGA president, said he believed that using the DGA agreement as a model could easily resolve the strike within two weeks.   Other authors have disputed Wells` positive assessment.  The WGC/CMPA IPA has been negotiated and ratified and will enter into force on July 1, 2019.
The full agreement is now available below. Chip Johannessen and Billy Ra y co-chairs of the WGA 2014 negotiating committee A 0.5% increase in the contribution to the pension fund effective May 2, 2014. WGC Independent Production Agreement (IPA) 2012-2014 Anousha Sakoui is an entertainment industry author for the Los Angeles Times, which deals with labor and Hollywood issues. In 2014, she moved from London to Los Angeles and graduated from the University of Edinburgh. Your negotiating committee is pleased to inform you that an interim agreement has been reached with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers on a new minimum basic agreement (MBA). Contract negotiations began on 3 February and ended last night. Most of them were actually developed by both parties almost a month ago, as I reported on March 6, with only an agreement on the issue of options and exclusivity. After a second two-week break, the return to the table on March 31 for the last two days of hearings was the last kick-off to end everything. For the rest, although it took a little longer than expected to reach an agreement between the start of the talks on February 3, the WGA`s new agreement with studios and networks is pretty much sticking to the model negotiating plan and, on the whole, similar to the agreement reached by the DGA at its end of last year. The negotiating committee has now attached the provisional agreement to the WGAW Board of Directors and the WGAE Board for their stamp, before sending the agreement to members for ratification.
The current WGA contract expires on May 1. On November 19, 2008, the Writers Guild of America announced that it had filed arbitration proceedings against the Alliance of Motion Picture – Television Producers for failing to comply with the agreement that ended the strike.  The matter was resolved with the WGA and AMPTP and a new agreement came into force on May 2, 2011.  After the WGA and the Alliance of Motion Picture and TV Producers agreed late in the evening on a new three-year contract, the union this afternoon e-mailed its members (see below) by bargaining committee co-chairs Chip Johannessen and Billy Ray to “complicated and lengthy” negotiations of “An increase in contributions to our retirement plan, minimum values for subscription-based video-on-demand programs, increased residues for ad-supported streaming, oversized increases in script minima for a one-hour base cable, and a doubling of theatrical script publication fees,” the statement said.
