Union Representing Disney World Cast Members Reach Tentative Agreement Over Wages wdw-labor-negotiations-press-conf

Unite Here! Local 362, the union that represents Walt Disney World cast members, has confirmed that a tentative agreement was reached Thursday afternoon with Disney to raise cast members to a wage of $18 per hour.

The tentative agreement includes retroactive pay back to October of 2022 with staggered increases giving all full-time cast $18 per hour by the end of 2023.

Our cast members are central to Walt Disney World’s enduring magic, which is why we are pleased to have reached this tentative agreement. Disney is proud to offer an industry-leading employment package that includes comprehensive benefits and affordable medical coverage, in addition to 100 percent paid tuition for higher education for hourly employees through the Disney Aspire program. With the support of the unions, we anticipate cast members will approve this new agreement.

Workers will cast their votes on the tentative agreement on Wednesday, March 29, 2023.
