WGA West President David Goodman to Members: ‘Nothing’s Easy, So We’ll Do What Is Hard’

Fresh off a convincing victory in a contentious election, WGA West president David Goodman has asserted that writers need to demand their fair share of the profits — and that the guild will continue to take an aggressive stance.

“This is a booming, expanding industry, and we’re at the heart of it,” he said in an email sent Friday to members. “It should be an easy time to demand our fair share. But nothing’s easy, so we’ll do what is hard.”

The announcement comes with the WGA locked in a heated standoff with Hollywood agents over the issues of how agents represent WGA members. The guild required on April 13 that members fire their agents if the agents had not signed a Code of Conduct, which bans agents from taking packaging fees and prohibits agencies from owning production affiliates.
