[UPDATED With Agreement Ratified:] Disneyland and UNITE HERE Local 11 Near Bargaining Agreement, Higher Wages, Better Healthcare For Hotel Workers
UPDATE, DEC. 8, 10:41 A.M.: The ballots have been counted and the results announced. The fierce feud is over.
Here's a joint statement from Disneyland and UNITE HERE:
"We are pleased that we were able to craft a fair and comprehensive agreement that works for the Disneyland Resort and, most important, for the 2,100 union hotel workers who now have the security of working with a multiyear contract in place. While it has been a long journey, we were able to cooperate and reach compromises that were agreeable to all parties and benefitted the Local 11 cast members who help deliver an unparalleled level of service to our Disneyland Resort guests every day."
The move comes after a years-long process and multiple stalled negotiations between Disneyland and the union. Check out our cover story from last year.
