Organization
    Labor union representing 11,400 screenwriters for film and television
    Affiliate of the AFL-CIO
    Member of the International Federation of Journalists
    Divided into two branches: WGA west and WGA east
    In 1952, they authorized studios to delete onscreen credits for any writers who had not been cleared by Congress, as part of the industry's "blacklisting" of writers with alleged leftist leanings.
    They went on strike for 22 weeks in 1988. Consequently, many television viewers were alienated by the lack of fresh programming.
    The poor viewers turned to home video and cable channels. Since then, post-strike ratings have not recovered and continue to decline every season.
    They went on strike again for 100 days (November 2007-January 2008).
    People were smart enough to search for alternatives for entertainment (YouTube, the Internet, home videos anyone?).
    They forced the cancellation of numerous awards shows including the 65th Golden Globe Awards.
    Thinking they are the big man on campus, they tried to cancel that years' Oscars (the strike ended before the date and the show went on).
    Incumbent President Victoria Riskin was forced to resign amid a scandal (2004).
    They provide benefits such as health care for screenwriters.
    They are a powerful force in both Hollywood and the business industry.
    Without writers, your favorite shows would be bleak.
