On the heels of the recent contract votes for the unions representing almost half of the WDW workforce, Disney World’s Security is in negotiations over some of the same details (higher healthcare costs, overtime, etc) that were the sticking points with the larger group. As before the union leaders have recommended that the workers accept the contract, and as before the workers rejected it. As far as Disney is concerned, they’re bringing a pot of money to the table that is a certain size, if the union wants to redistribute those funds, that is fine. But there won’t be any more money coming in. Now, union members will have to decide shortly if they want to strike or accept the mouse’s next offer. This is beginning to sound like a broken record.
