Protecting Writers from AI and Low Pay: Writers’ Guild Urges Next Government

The Writers’ Guild of Great Britain (WGGB) is calling on the next government to take action to protect its members from the impact of artificial intelligence and low pay. Ellie Peers, the General Secretary of WGGB, highlighted the need for greater restrictions on free work, such as internships, across the creative industries. The union is also advocating for penalties for organizations that continue to underpay their writers.

As the general election on July 4 approaches, WGGB is making its case for these important aims to ensure that writers are not exploited or undervalued in an increasingly digital and competitive industry. By addressing the challenges posed by AI and low pay, the union aims to support its members and promote fair compensation for their creative work.
