After raising hopes that it planned to make a new dramatic proposal to the Writers Guild of America (WGA), negotiators for the Association of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) returned to the negotiating table after two days of caucusing with a proposal that was rejected out of hand by the writers. The AMPTP had described it as a "proposal laying the groundwork and providing a framework for an agreement ... flexible enough to allow both parties to come up with solutions as to the remaining issues." The WGA, without directly responding to the proposal, said that it did "not constitute forward motion." Both sides adjourned for the day accusing the other of intransigence.
