Writers Guild History

July 30, 1988

This concerns Michael Cieply's story about a "secret pact" between the studios and the Directors Guild of America, supposedly made during the 1987 DGA negotiations and under which the studios supposedly pledged not to pay more to any other Hollywood union for television reruns than what the DGA got. (" 'Secret Pact' Stirs Up a Dispute," July 22)

As the DGA's executive director, the principal spokesman and chief negotiator in all of DGA's collective bargaining negotiations, I can tell you categorically that there was no such discussion, much less pledge or agreement.
