As we have been reporting, the largest Union of Walt Disney World Cast Members and Disney have been involved in negotiations since August to increase Cast Member’s wages. Both sides met at the bargaining table again yesterday and failed to meet an agreement.
Since no agreement was met, both parties agreed to extend the existing contract through December 1, 2017.
“All of our Cast Members earn nearly $2 more an hour than Florida’s minimum wage—and on average, our full-time STCU Cast earn over $13 an hour, including overtime and premiums,” Disney said in a statement. “We agree our Cast Members deserve a raise, which is why we’ve offered an increase of up to 5 percent over the next two years for most existing Cast Members.”
Negotiations are set to began after the Thanksgiving Break on November 28, 2017.
