Negotiating Between Disney and the Service Trades Council Union Starts on Monday

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.
