Unite Here Local 362 has announced that they will begin contract negotiations with Walt Disney World management next week. Their current contract, which went into effect in September 2017, ends October 1, 2022. Local 362 is an affiliate of the Service Trades Council Union (STCU) which currently represents 41,000 Cast Members at Walt Disney World.
The negotiations come at a time when the Disney Parks division has bounced back completely from the March 2020 shutdowns, but also at a time when inflation is putting even more strain on Cast Members. The details of the negotiations haven’t been released yet, but we will continue to keep an eye on this story and report more as it becomes available.
