The Orlando Sentinel has more details on the labor agreement between Disney World and the largest group of unions at the resort. It appears that both sides are getting a little bit of what they want. Disney gets to keep a growth cap on wages and the unions get better pensioning, scheduling, and health care. Of course, all may not be what it seems in this news story, one of the unions will not be recommending the new pact to its members.
With a low unemployment rate, it seemed to me that this year the unions held a few more cards than the Mouse House. But with the transitory nature of most of the jobs at the resort, I don’t see the willpower/financial ability to weather a strike. So small changes is about all that can be expected at this point.
