Disney World reaches tentative labor deal with unions
Written by Robert Niles
Walt Disney World and a coalition representing its employees' largest labor unions announced a tentative three-year contract last night. But one of the unions, the Teamsters, is not yet recommending the deal to its members.Tweet
The Orlando Sentinel reports the details. The Teamsters represent bus drivers and laundry workers around the resort. But the unions representing the vast majority of in-park workers are supporting the deal, which would provide 4 to 5 percent pay raises.
Union leaders are scheduling a vote for workers on the proposed deal.
