Two questions about the studio

The first one isn't necessarily about the studio, per se, but about the writer's strike. Who, exactly, do the writers work for? Are they independent contractors or are they actually employees of the production company? Second, and this one is about Wilmington movie production: Has the unionization of workers at the Wilmington studio killed the goose that laid the golden egg? In the late Eighties/early Nineties we had producers lining up and clamouring for space at the studio because it was SO much cheaper than shooting on the West Coast. I now hear that it's "not so much cheaper, any more" and that lots of other filming locations have support workers who will work for a lot less. Will anyone who KNOWS the answer respond, please?
