This article comes to us from Jason Garcia, Orlando Sentinel.
Against the worst economic backdrop since the Great Depression, Walt Disney World and the coalition of unions that represent half of the giant resort’s 58,000 workers have begun negotiating a new employment contract.
The talks, which began last month and will continue at least until September, hold significant implications for Central Florida. The next contract between Disney World and the Service Trades Council will influence the spending power of approximately 20,000 full-time workers and the profitability of the region’s largest employer at a time of faltering consumer confidence and 11 percent state unemployment.
The economic uncertainty is certain to loom over the discussions.
