The Writers Guild of America, East is a labor union of thousands of creative professionals who create digital media, television and motion pictures.
For decades the Writers Guild has been essential in fighting for better standards in working conditions, compensation, and the respect of dignity of members. Our mission is to build a community of creative professionals with the willingness to support each other and the power to secure fair industry standards.
In just over two years, over a thousand digital media workers have joined the Writers Guild by forming unions in their workplaces.
Reporters, writers, editors, photographers, copy editors, producers, graphic designers, social media editors, audio technicians, directors, shooters and more have joined together to win a formal seat at the table in order to negotiate over the future of their workplace.
