Disney spokeswoman Andrea Finger said, “We have presented a strong and meaningful offer that far outpaces Florida minimum wage by at least $5 an hour and immediately takes starting wages for certain roles including bus drivers, housekeepers and culinary up to a minimum of $20 an hour while providing a path to $20 for all other full-time, non-tipped STCU roles during the contract term.”

The Services Trade Council Union is taking part in contract negotiations this week on behalf of 42000 Walt Disney World Cast Members. Wage increases are one of the top issues.

The wage increase proposal would mean that 25% of non-tipped employees would earn $20 per hour within the first year of the new contract agreement.

The current contract expired in October of this year. Both Disney and the union agreed to extend it while negotiations are ongoing.
