While the Disneyland Resort is still negotiating with several other unions, today they reached a furlough agreement with the Independent Employee Service Association, which represents security Cast Members.

In a joint statement, officials from both sides shared the terms of the agreement, which are similar to the offer made to non-union Cast Members last week:

Independent Employee Service Association and Disney have reached an agreement for hourly security cast members that will maintain members’ health insurance benefits coverage, educational support and additional employee assistance programs during a temporary furlough effective April 19. This agreement provides an easier return to work when our community recovers from the impact of COVID-19. We are grateful to have worked together in good faith to help our cast and members navigate these unprecedented times.

More than 28,000 of the 31,000 Disneyland Resort Cast Members are represented by a union.
