If you are a WGA member, you must make sure the Company employing you is a Guild signatory and that your work is covered under a Guild agreement. If you don’t, you may be in violation of Working Rule 8. Guild staff can work with you to assist a Company through the signatory process or negotiate a deal for coverage on your behalf.
If you are a non-member, our staff can work with you and your fellow writers to secure a WGA contract which provides health and pension benefits, residuals and other Guild protections. We currently seek to expand our jurisdiction in the areas of:
- Digital/New Media
- Independent Film
- Documentary Film & Nonfiction Programming
- Game Shows
