Disney World Unions Almost Unanimously Reject Disney’s $1 Pay Raise. Union Members making up 6 different Disney Unions outright rejected Walt Disney World’s most recent proposal, Of the 14,263 votes cast, over 96% voted NO, in an outright rebuff.

“I think the workers at Disney World have sent a loud message that $1 is not enough. The company need to provide a meaningful wage increase that addresses the economic issues that workers are facing,” said Matt Hollis, president of the Service Trades Council Union

UNITE Here! Local 362 tweeted immediately following the tally.

Union negotiators are demanding an immediate $3-an-hour raise, which would be about a 20% pay hike for the 75% of workers now earning $15 an hour. The union and rank-and-file members say workers wouldn’t be able to afford to live in central Florida under the company’s offer.

Disney World basically is offering a $1 an-hour raise every year for the next 5 years. Disney workers are facing extreme financial difficulties including inflation, which has caused the price of food and rent to skyrocket. $16.00 per hour in 2023 does not keep up with the rising cost of living. Every worker needs an initial raise larger than $1.00 to address these concerns.

This is an ongoing situation, and we do not know what is next. Will Disney come back to the table? The STCU, which is made of 6 different unions has been working without a contract since October 1st, 2022.
