CBS News, Promo & Sports Writers Campaign

The WGAW members of the CBS News, Sports and Promo Writers wish to recognize all those who signed on to our Solidarity Petition. We received over 10,000 signatures in support worldwide. A two-year contract with CBS was unanimously ratified by the WGAW membership this week; a testament to the power of Solidarity. We thank you.
