Walt Disney World union workers rally for higher wages, better benefits

Hundreds of Disney housekeepers, restaurant workers, and ride operators chanted “yes” in an attempt to get a new contract for union workers.

Their current contract expires at the end of March.

he union rally comes one week before negotiations with Disney for higher wages, more affordable benefits and improvements to pension plans.

“Two-thirds of our people we represent are not making enough money, less than $10 an hour,” Marc said. “So hopefully the company will look at that.”

Disney claims many of the union workers who make less than $10 an hour only work part-time. The company said despite complaints, many of the union workers have chosen to remain at Disney a decade or more.
