WGAW grants interim agreement for Grammys


MUMBAI: The Writers Guild of America, West (WGAW) has agreed to grant an interim agreement for this year’s Grammy Awards in Los Angeles. This will allow for written material for the show to be covered under a Guild contract.
“Professional musicians face many of the same issues that we do concerning fair compensation for the use of their work in new media. In the interest of advancing our goal of achieving a fair contract, the WGAW Board felt that this decision should be made on behalf of our brothers and sisters in the American Federation of Musicians and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists,” said WGAW president Patric M. Verrone.
The WGAW represents writers in the motion picture, broadcast, cable, and new media industries in both entertainment and news.
