Writers Strike Close To Over?

Writers Guild of America members are voting in New York and Los Angeles on whether to end their 3-month strike.

Michael Winship, president of the Writers Guild of America,
East, says he is confident that Tuesday's vote would put the
entertainment industry back to work as soon as Wednesday.

Voting started in New York. Guild members in Los Angeles set to
begin casting ballots later in the day.

Winship says members were well-informed about a tentative
contract agreement with studios that was approved Sunday by the
guild's board of directors.

The results of the vote are expected to be available late
Tuesday night.
The proposed contract secures writers a share of compensation
for Internet-delivered TV shows and movies.
