Disney Union Negotiations Continue

22 Jan

The Orlando Sentinel has an update on Disney’s talks with the unions:

This round of talks comes soon after union frustration heated up late last year regarding Disney’s efforts to get private contractors to take over some work at Disney World and some hotels.

In the past 15 or 16 months, Disney World has transferred nearly 600 jobs, involving some hotel maids, park custodians, valet, bell-service and baggage-handling workers, and production technicians. To date the moves have eliminated only about 1 percent of Disney World’s nearly 60,000 jobs, and the company insisted that all its affected employees were offered other Disney World jobs at comparable pay.

The article goes on to mention a page on the union’s web site with a parody of Year of a Million Dreams. If anybody can find the right page, please post it here or mail it to me . . . I’d love to see the images, and Google isn’t being very nice to me.

    I noticed that this page is getting a lot of traffic today . . .so I thought I’d add a link to http://www.wearedisney.info/, a web site set up by the unions which represent a large number of Disney Cast Members.
