Main-st-usa-02

In July, The DIS reported that the Service Trades Council Union had plans to reopen wage negotiations with the Walt Disney World Resort. This Monday, August 28, those negotiations over a potential raise in wages for cast members, will begin.

According to WFTV, the Service Trades Council Union argues that cast members’ should start at $15 an hour, which they state is a “living wage.” Under the current agreement cast members wouldn’t reach a pay rate of $15 an hour until 2028. Additionally, the Service Trades Council Union is negotiating for “simplified schedules.”

Disney claims that they want to find a solution on Monday that is fair their employees.
