  • News Union talks breaking down even more, between CMs and the Union and the Union and WDC

    The head of Walt Disney World's largest labor group called Thursday for a second vote on a contract that workers narrowly rejected eight weeks ago — and criticized some fellow union leaders who are blocking another vote.

    The move exposed the deepening fissures between the six unions that make up Disney World's Service Trades Council, which is deadlocked in its contract talks with the giant resort. Three of the six unions are pressing for another vote on what Disney says is its final offer, while the other three want to escalate pressure on the company in hopes of winning further concessions.

    Say what you want about these unions, unions in general, disney's practices, whatever...

    I think having this many unions, with such a variety in job duties and how their pay benefits work, participating in a single vote on approving a contract is absolute madness and unfair to both Disney and the cast members effected by the contract. Do ya think that, just maybe, work areas like housekeepers, costumed characters, ticket takers, and custodians might have different issues involved with their individual parts of the contract that the others don't see as that big a deal and just want to vote the contract through but actually might be and it all creates a big mess? :P
