To get the WGA label, they have to abide by the WGA contract and pay union wages. WGA writers are not allowed to work for non-union companies.

I'm not sure what you mean by "get the WGA label," but what Joan says is correct. The have to be signatory with the guild, which means they sign a contract agreeing to the union's labor standards. That way the union members benefit with guaranteed labor conditions (credit protection, minimums for rewrites, etc) and the production company benefits by have access to a group of (presumably) quality writers.
