According to various news sources including WESH, the 6 unions representing thousands of workers at Walt Disney World has reached a contract agreement that would raise the starting pay of Disney Cast Members to $15 an hour. The proposed increase will go into effect starting in 2021.
Under the proposal wages will sit at $11 for the remainder of the year but will increase incrementally going up to $12 next March, $13 next September and then up to $14 by October 2019. The agreement is slated to run through until the Fall of 2022. The members of the unions will officially vote on the agreement September 5-6, 2018.
This is good news for trade unions coming at the end of a long negotiating process. This is a story that we’ll be watching closely here at Chip and Co. so keep following along.
