Michael Eisner, ex-head of Disney, has stated the WGA strike has been resolved and will soon be passed on to the wider writers members for official approval:
“It’s over,” Eisner said. “They made the deal, they shook hands on the deal. It’s going on Saturday to the writers in general.”
Eisner, speaking live on CNBC’s “Fast Money,” seemed to hesitate initially about whether it was possible that the writers could still reject the agreement, but finally suggested the deal’s acceptance was inevitable.
“A deal has been made, and they’ll be back to work very soon,” Eisner said, adding, “I know a deal’s been made. I know it’s over.”
Last week we were also told the strike was over, so this could just be another stepping stone, but either way it sounds like we’re very, very close.
