Five months after firing their agents, members of the Writers Guild are still at war with the major agencies over packaging fees. In the heat of the ongoing union election, we try to explore a couple of perspectives on the two groups competing for Guild leadership. We talked to WGA board member Angelina Burnett about why she thinks the Guild can ultimately win this fight. We had trouble getting anyone on the air to discuss the dissidents' point of view, but finally Guild member Rob Long--who's not running for anything, but does support the opposition--stepped up. But unlike many dissidents who think some change is needed, Long thinks the Guild's fight against packaging is pointless.
