The Young and the Restless Writers to Remain Loyal

by at . Comments
young-logo.jpg A recent article in Variety hinted that writers from The Young and the Restless were contemplating a crossing of the picket lines.

Now, though, the staff of the show has released a statement that shoots this rumor down.

“As the writing staff of The Young and the Restless gathered to share pizza together -- something we have vowed to do weekly until the strike ends -- we were incensed to read the incorrect information printed in Variety that several writers on our show sought financial core status,” the statement read.

So while the writers would love to address soap fans that are dying to find out if Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) will prove that Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) is a killer, the strikers are not going to because they aren't presently working.

"Our entire writing staff of 18 is united and we fully support our union. Not a single person who was writing for Y&R when we struck has gone core. Not one. We stand united with sore feet from picketing. Well, some of us sit. But we all do our part, and we cannot be parted,” the statement continued.
