Unions announce “Rally For A Raise” as stalemate continues on Wage Negotiations with Disney World

Contract negotiation between unions representing Walt Disney World Cast Members and Walt Disney World have been at stalemate for several weeks following a breakdown in talks between the two sides.

At the most recent talks between the two sides came following an overwhelming 96% rejection of Walt Disney World’s offer to gradually raise wages to $20 over the next few years by cast members in a ballot organised by the Service Trades Council Union, who represent more than 45,000 Walt Disney World Cast Members.

At the negotiations, union representatives revealed that Disney had returned to the table with a WORSE offer than the one that Cast Members had rejected.

Now the Service Trades Council Union has announced a “Rally For A Raise” in the shadow of Cinderella's Castle at the Reams Road entrance to Walt Disney World, located close to West Clock Cast Parking, where Magic Kingdom Cast Members park while working.

The "Rally For A Raise" is set to take place March 16 at 5 pm.

In announcing the "Rally For A Raise" on social media, the union states that they are prepared to meet for negotiations whenever Disney is ready to give Cast Members $18 minimum in 2023, and full retroactive pay back to October 2022.

Unions are now urging Cast Members to tell the world how hard it is to live on Disney wages.
