According to a recent post in the Los Angeles Times, after a year and a half of negotiations, Disneyland Resort has reached a tentative contract agreement with the union that represents over 2,000 works at Disney’s onsite hotel properties.
The agreement was reached on early Tuesday by Unite Here Local 11 and Disneyland’s management team. The proposed contract will raise the starting salary at Disney’s hotels to a minimum of $15 per hour up from $13. It is also requested that workers are paid a $1000 bonus that had previously been promised after the Republican tax plan was approved last year.
The next step is for the workers to vote on the four-year contract which will take place this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. If approved the contract would go into effect on September 24, 2018.
In addition to raising the minimum wage for Disney hotel employees the agreement also includes “fair workloads for housekeepers” and affordable health insurance options according to the union officials that have been presiding over the agreement.
