Disneyland Cast Members being recalled for upcoming dining & shopping reopening

Disneyland recently announced that Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure park will be reopening to guests for shopping and dining. Now, some cast members are being recalled back to work.

Over 200 cast members from Workers United Local 50 union are being recalled. Union president Chris Duarte posted the following to the union’s Facebook page:

“Recall from furlough update 10/24,

For the expansion of Downtown Disney into Buena Vista Street over 200 Local 50 members will be recalled back to work. Recall will happen in a few waves. This Monday will begin with trainers, leads, and some heart of house roles that will begin the process of getting the restaurants up and running.

Notification will by phone call, but may not be a normal Disneyland 714 area code phone number. If you don’t answer your phone when the company calls they will leave a voice mail for you to return ASAP and will call one more no sooner than 45 minutes later. After that they will move on to the next person in seniority order. Please make sure your voicemail box is able to receive a message. When being contacted for recall members will be notified of the position they will be filling.

Recall in each scheduling group will be by job classification (steward, food prep, receiver, etc.) in descending seniority order regardless of location job knowledge. Recall for premium positions, such as leads and trainers, will be in descending seniority order by Full Time conversion dates. For some Carthay Circle roles previous skill and ability requirements may be enforced.
A few weeks ago we posted the summary of the recall process and it is pinned to the top of our Facebook page. If you have any questions after you have reviewed please contact us.

In solidarity,
Chris Duarte
Workers United Local 50”
