n.— «According to this site, members do not have to do anything to seek financial-core status. They may simply choose to work, and the WGA has no right to impose discipline. However, a WGA site said members must resign first in writing. It is not necessary to prove financial hardship. Financial-core writers may no longer vote or run for office. They may also continue to work without formal repercussions, and the union continues to represent them in bargaining negotiations. Some may choose financial-core status because they need an income; others because they disagree with the union’s politics. More writers might consider the “fi-core” alternative, as it is called, if the strike stretches out.» —“The plot thickens at strike-hit soaps” by Lynn Smith Los Angeles Times Dec. 31, 2007.
