WGA Files For Arbitration Against Producers For Not Keeping Up On New Media Residuals

And so it starts again: The Writers Guild of America (WGA) is planning to file for arbitration against the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers (AMPTP), alleging that the producers are not complying with the new contract that was negotiated after a prolonged strike during the winter of 2007-08. The full WGA statement is here. Details after the jump.

The points in WGA’s new complaint:
— That the media companies part of AMPTP are not paying residuals for writers
