The unions cfdt, CFTC and UNSA had called for a strike of its members for today as of 7.00 am to protest the lack of social dialogue between the workforce / unions and the management of the resort. In particular the proposed â€œZero Euroâ€ wage increase for / in 2010 is targeted by the unions, who demand a pay rise for all cast members as of January 1, 2010, an improvement of the work conditons, increased wages for work on Sundays as well as a doubling of the premium for night shifts. Details about the call to strike and the demands are available from the official website of the union cfdt at Disneyland Paris.
When the parks opened guests would not have noticed that any strike was ongoing. However, that changed at 2.00 pm sharp in the Walt Disney Studios Park when the unions sprang into actionâ€¦
About 150 cast members waving flags of the cfdt and the CFTC as well as union posters stormed the Production Courtyard Stage in the Walt Disney Studios park, in front of which guests had already assembled to secure a spot for the performance of â€œDisneyâ€™s Starsâ€™n’Carsâ€ at 2.30 pm. They â€œentertainedâ€ the guests with whistles and by shouting various chants with the help of megafons. The chants and slogans on the posters include amongst others â€œMickey, Sois pas une ratâ€. While security cast members were in the area, they were not taking any action against their demonstrating fellow cast members.
