Lion King

3 “Festival of the Lion King” performers at the Animal Kingdom have regained their jobs recently. They were fired in June after refusing to wear costumes that were dirty and smelly. They sued and won their jobs back with back pay.

A federal Arbitrator ruled in their favor last week. They said Disney violated a collective bargaining agreement by firing them.

A Disney spokesman said that the company will comply with the ruling.

Dalton said Disney initially offered to rehire the employees but not for performing jobs and without back pay.

The workers also would have had reprimands in their files. However, now they won’t under the federal arbitrator’s decision.

Good for them!

Wishing you Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust

One thought on “Fired Disney Cast Members get Their Jobs Back

  1. I was told that the performers prevented a show from moving forward when they refused to put on the costumes. While I would never want someone to compromise their safety or push forward through a show if they were injured, I don’t think they should’ve prevented guests from seeing the Festival of the Lion King because their costumes were dirty or smelly. That’s not cool. I don’t think it’s fair to ask performers to wear unclean costumes or uniforms, either – but I find it hard to believe that Disney refused to clean their costumes – I would imagine there would be some extenuating circumstances behind it that possibly could’ve been rectified without this extreme action. Ultimately it’s too bad both parties had to go this extreme, lawsuits and such. Ick! (I love that show, though!!)
