Why are the writers on strike? 

The Writers Guild of America called on their members to go on strike on 2 May, ending over a decade of labor peace in the industry. 

The WGA and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP), which represents major studios such as Disney, Netflix, Apple and Amazon, failed to reach an agreement on a new film and scripted TV contract.

The writers’ demands include a pay increase, a stable pay structure and guarantees that artificial intelligence won’t be used in scriptwriting.

On July 14, SAG-AFTRA also went on strike over an ongoing labor dispute with the AMPTP. This is the first time since the 1960s that SAG-AFTRA and the 11,000-member Writers Guild of America are on strike at the same time.
