As Mr. Marmel lifts from here, so I return the favor.
A commenter on Animation Writers asks:
Did i readit write that Steve hullet wrote that he thought all writers should be covered by the WGA, even animation writers? ...
No, Steve Hulett never wrote that.
What Steve Hulett wrote was, he thinks non-represented writers, be they animation or live action, should organize under the union with which they choose to affiliate.
A few weeks ago, Steve Hulett told Patric Verrone and the WGA assistant executive director (who's name I forget), that if the WGA is organizing non-represented animation writers and TAG is able to stay out of the way, then TAG will stay out of the way.
Sometimes it isn't possible to stand clear, other times it is. I've experienced both phenomena.
Also, its unclear to me, do these writers get to keep their own residuals?
Assuming this means the Sit Down, Shut Up writers, yes they do.
The SDSU writers get the WGA-style residuals they negotiated under the TAG c.b.a.'s "Better terms and conditions" clause, and they get the residuals that the IATSE negotiated that flow into the Motion Picture Industry Health and Pension Plan.
