I heard Monday, there is definitely a strong feeling they will strike. I was on a commercial at Universal yesterday and today, the call sheet had a note stating we were a "Neutral Party" if there were picket lines, as there is no WGA contract with this commercial production company.

Unless there is either a last minute resolution or both parties decide to go back to the bargining table there wil be a strike commencing 12:01am on Monday, Nov. 5.
L.A. Mayor, Antonio Villaraigosa has become involved in the labor dispute and my understanding is that both sides are meeting tomorrow (Sunday) in a last ditch effort to keep the talks between the parties afloat.
