Orloff, in an email to the 10,000 WGA West members, said Wednesday he’s disappointed by the acrimony that the dispute has produced and by the strategic mistakes of the WGA leaders.
“This leadership has asked for our ‘#solidarity,’ but it has not offered it back,” Orloff wrote. “It seems, at least from where I type, this is a case of all animals are equal — but some animals are more equal than others. And this could be toxic for our future collective actions.”
Orloff, whose credits include “A Mighty Heart,” urged members to vote for the Writers Forward Together slate, which is running on a platform that highlights the need for the WGA to resume negotiations with the major agencies after staying away from talks since early June.
