Quinta Brunson Rallies WGA: ‘We’re Fighting for Something and We’re Not Gonna Leave Here With Nothing’
video posted by the official WGA Instagram account, likely referring to the organizing of themed pickets, mixers and impromptu concerts.Brunson, who also plays the lead role of Janine Teagues in the ABC sitcom, urged guild members to “remember what we’re working towards,” as she encouraged the WGA to remain united. There is a strong possibility of “other, fellow unions join[ing] us” soon, as the SAG-AFTRA board voted unanimously last week to ask members for authorization to go on strike if the guild is unable to reach a new deal with studios by the current contract’s expiration on June 30.“We’re working towards this being over, we’re working towards getting better pay, better living arrangements — people need to live, people need sustenance, they need to be able to pay their rent, to pay for food,” Brunson said. “If we keep staying strong, then we’re actually going to be able to make this end sooner and get the things that we’re fighting for — I think that’s a very important part of this,” she continued.
