According to the New York Times
, the WGA is pushing to organize reality show writers...
And the following from other coast:
The guild representing Hollywood writers disclosed Monday that more than 75% of the scribes on TV reality shows have signed cards asking to be represented by the union. ... The Writers Guild of America, West, said about 1,000 reality TV writers, producers and editors out of an estimated 1,300 have requested since May 7 to join the union. Guild officials said they had sent letters to all the major production companies asking to negotiate, but none responded.

I'm sure it seemed back in the day that organizing writers would be like herding cats, but we've got a union now. So Lord willing, this will work too.
