In a statement to Deadline, the writers made it clear that they’re not backing down. They want fair wages, workplace protections, and all that good stuff. They’re not gonna settle for anything less, especially since iHeart has been playing dirty by trying to intimidate union members. Not cool, iHeart, not cool.
