Writers Make History With Contract for Web Work

Aug 25, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Marking the first time it has signed a contract for Web news writing and promotions, the Writers Guild of America, West, signed a contract with CBS that covers 15 Web writer-producers in TV and radio news, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Company Town blog.

The three-year agreement includes increases in minimum wages and establishes paid vacations, health and pension benefits and grievance procedures, the story says.

The ratification comes two years after the writer-producers voted to be represented by the guild, the article says.
