All tag results for strike
A bill that would have put heavy restrictions on abortions in the state of Texas was declared dead early this morning, but it wasn't without its fair share of drama!
Senator Wendy Davis was at the center of it all yesterday when she attempted a 13-hour filibuster to block any voting on the bill. However, her effort fell three hours short after she was given third strike for violating rules when it was determined she had gone off topic!
A packed gallery full of protestors broke into boos chants of "Shame! Shame! Shame!" as the people took over where Wendy left off, and the room erupted into applause when the clock struck midnight and it looked as though the bill was officially dead!
See the controversial and INSANE final 10 minutes of the special session AFTER THE JUMP!!!
If you were planning on hitting up the Fashion Police writers rally, you’re too late!
The rally took place today outside of E!’s headquarters, and the picketers wrapped up around 12:30 this afternoon (as planned).
In the morning, strikers took up the HIGHlarious chant of:
“We’re still poor, you’re still rich, give us back our paycheck bitch!”
LOLz!! Clever and appropriate! Definitely got the point accross.
There were around 150 picketers at the peak of the rally. Bryan Cook, one of the writers involved, addressed the crowd along with anyone who cared to listen.
Here’s a glimpse of what he covered:
Writers over at E!'s Fashion Police have been on strike since April 17th…
THIS Thursday (May 23), the FP scribes are holding a rally/picket outside of E! headquarters in Los Angeles.
They are inviting any and all who wish to support their call for fair wages, compensation for unpaid overtime, AND their bid to join the Writers Guild of America.

Find out ALL the deets about the picket/rally …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
You can’t stop the jokes from coming!
E!'s Fashion Police writers might be in the middle of a heated battle for fair wages and Writers Guild of America recognition, but that isn’t stopping them from cracking the eff up!
And cracking US the eff up, we might add.
The writers might be buried up to their elbows in legal dramz, but they’ve also been quite busy making a HIGHlarious little video about what they’re “really” doing with all this extra time!
We’re rolling on the floor laughing over some of these insane one-liners they came up with upon the NEW claims people are being asked to write Joan Rivers' jokes anonymously and get paid under the table!
Seriously, E! is missing out with these jokesters.
It might be time to give them what they want. They’re CLEARLY worth it!
Ch-ch-check it out (above)!
EXCLUSIVE! Fashion Police Writers Claim E! Honchos Are Trying To GUILT Them Into Ending Strike! Read Open Letter HERE!
Not being fair to your employees is SO not fashionable!
AND they are demanding that E! allow them to be considered as a Writers Guild show so that they can be protected by the WGA organization from future shady dealings!
Now, we've heard that people over at E! claim they ARE willing to negotiate and that it is the writers who are being unreasonable, but we've JUST been made aware of a rather harsh email that was sent solely to the writers FROM a network bigwig that seems to want to GUILT the writers into giving up!!
In the e-mail, the person reiterates the point that it is the WRITERS who are holding up their own cause, and that "negotiations could have been underway and it’s entirely possible that we could already have a fair deal for all by now."
BUT, our inside source — a Fashion Police writer — alleges that the only reason E! wants them to enter an election NOW is because the writers would be required to DROP their lawsuit against the network first.
The writers have drafted up an open letter in response, that reads as follows:
That's one way to stick it to the BOZZ!
Writers for E!'s clothing critique show Fashion Police are attempting to garner HUNDREDS of dollars worth of unpaid overtime that they claim is owed to them by the network AND Joan Rivers' production company…
Well, it seems the stylish scribes are NOT f*cking around and have decided to STRIKE!
