WGA Will Strike, Maybe

Update 1:47 AM PT: A posting on the WGAW website doesn't yet seem to say they actually are on strike:
The WGAW Board and the WGAE Council will meet Friday to consider the recommendation of the Negotiating Committee and to decide the next steps. The decision of the Board and Council whether and when to strike will be communicated to the membership by e-mail and through the Captains system, and will be posted on the WGAW and WGAE websites.
Earlier post:

As AP reported about 1 hour ago:
Hollywood writers who have long complained of being underpaid and getting little respect said Thursday they would go on strike for the first time in nearly 20 years to fight for a bigger piece of the television and movie industry action.
I mentioned earlier, it looks like SAG and AFTRA actors must still go to work:
If you are contracted to work on a show that continues to produce episodes you are obligated by your personal service agreement and the "No Strike" clause in our collective bargaining agreements to go to work
(from SAG website). A PDF on the AFTRA site says close to the same thing. Caveat actor.
