Winship runs unopposed for fourth term
Members of the Writers Guild of America East have elected all eight incumbents for two-year terms to its council seats.
Results were announced Friday. WGA East president Michael Winship and Secretary-Treasurer Bob Schneider both ran for re-election unopposed and Jeremy Pikser won the VP slot.
It’s the fourth two-year term for Winship, who was first elected six weeks before the WGA strike in 2007.
Incumbents Susan Kim, Bonnie Datt, Courtney Simon, Henry Bean and Bernardo Ruiz were re-elected to freelance seats along with Zhubin Parang.
A trio of staff reps were re-elected to the council — Sue Brown McCann, Duane Tollison and Phil Pilato.
The WGA East, which reps about 4,000 writers, jointly negotiates the master contract covering feature film and TV work with the WGA West. The current pact expires May 1.
Gang, I know all this sends “Quills” up and down your spines!
