Disneyland Avoids Strike

    The Teamsters Union and SEIU have announced that a contract with Disneyland has been ratified and a strike averted following a second vote on contract terms. An initial vote in November saw 60% of voting members vote against the contract. If that number would’ve reached 75%, a strike would’ve been possible. Instead, a second vote was held late this week and the contract passed the second vote.

    The new contract will retroactively provide a $1 raise back to June 16, 2021. A planned $1 raise on June 16, 2022 was moved up to November 17, 2021 if the contract passed the second vote (which it did). And another $1 increase will take place on June 16, 2023 before the contract expires. The bump in pay will be a roughly 20% increase for most Cast Members over the length of the agreement.

    Service bonuses will also be in place for up to $2,000 for Cast hire before on or before June 16, 2001, and up to $1,000 for Cast hired between June 17, 2001 and June 16, 2011.

    The next contract negotiations will take place in 2023 and the union recognized that “there is much more to fight for”.
