Disney World unions vote Thursday on contract
This article comes to us from the Orlando Sentinel.
Thousands of unionized workers at Walt Disney World will cast ballots Thursday on a new labor contract, amid jockeying both by union leaders and the company.
Opponents of the proposed Service Trades Council contract have been distributing flyers urging workers to vote no on the contract, under the slogan “Send Disney a message: We’re worth more.” Disney, meanwhile, has hung scores of posters that state: “A vote to ratify = more money” — a reminder that Disney is offering each full-time worker a $100 bonus if the contract is approved on the first vote.
Results of the vote aren’t expected until late Thursday night.
Three of the six unions that make up the council have recommended no votes, two have endorsed it, and one is neutral. The council represents approximately 20,000 full-time workers at Disney.
