UPDATE – Disney and Union Have Reached Deal to Raise Starting Wage by 2021

1

After weeks of negotiations, Walt Disney World has reached an agreement with the Service Trades Council Union to raise the starting pay for 38,000 cast members to $15 an hour beginning in 2021.

From the Palm Beach Post

The tentative agreement between Disney and STCU provides wage increases for all of its hourly, non-tipped union workers, the company said.
“We are thrilled our cast members will have the chance to vote on what is one of the highest entry-level service wages in the country,” said Robbin Almand, vice president of labor relations for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “This represents a 50 percent bump in pay, bringing starting wages to $15 an hour by 2021.”

The proposal is said to be the largest raise Disney has ever offered to Walt Disney World workers, and it includes retroactive pay of 50 cents an hour or 3 percent for all hours worked since Sept. 24, 2017.

Walt Disney World is experiencing a period of unprecedented expansion, and the company is currently looking to hire 3,000 more people. For details on how you can work for Disney, click here.

I've loved Disney as long as I can remember. As a former newspaper editor, web developer, and Disney comics freelancer, I'm able to combine that experience into writing about Disney online. I'm also the co-host of a Disney fan podcast called 'Pirates & Princesses.' Opinions mine.
