Disneyland Union Makes Public Plea as Disney Remains Silent About Theme Park Closures and Cast Scheduling

A Disneyland union has written a public note to Disney as the entertainment and theme park giant remained silent about extending the announced closure period for its theme parks.

In the letter below from Workers United Local 50, the union blasts Disney for their silence in these uncertain times. While their focus is on the Cast Members, they also note the absence of a public update with regards to a likely extension of the theme park closures.

As of publish time, Disney has announced that Walt Disney World and Disneyland are closed through March 31st. As the nation continues to see an increase in Coronavirus cases, it becomes more obvious by the day that an extension of the closures is imminent. County orders have also ensured that Disney’s domestic theme parks will be closed through the first week in April, but Disney Cast Members remain in the dark about their pay past March 31st.

In a social media post, Workers United Local 50 noted a lack of meaningful conversation with Disney in the past couple of days and the uncertainty that lies ahead for Cast Members. Here’s the letter the union posted and sent to Disney.

The Walt Disney Company saw a 6% increase in revenue in 2019 compared to 2018, eclipsing $26 billion.

  1. Seriously the union needs to just stop. No one knows when anything is opening again. And unlike the rest of us at least cast members are getting paid right now. If they need to file for unemployment like the millions of other people, like my family, then so be it. They sound like spoiled brats right now when the whole state is suffering.
