So you can't say it doesn't benefit them at all.

um...considering many of them aren't being paid at the moment...I don't see the benefit.

If the writers get more residuals, so will the IATSE. Sounds like a benefit to me. Obviously, for most members of the IATSE, the strike sucks, but at least there is one good thing that would come out of it, should the writers win.
