WGA Members at Sesame Workshop Ratify New Contract

Chris Garlock | Published on 5/17/2024
Members of Writers Guild of America East (WGAE) and Writers Guild of America West (WGAW) at Sesame Workshop have overwhelmingly ratified a new five-year collective bargaining agreement. “Make no mistake,” said WGAE President Lisa Takeuchi Cullen, “these historic gains mark an important step in organizing animation. Writing for children’s media and animation isn’t easier than other forms of screenwriting, and those workers deserve the same protections.”
