Disney World, union reach contract agreement


Published:

Union officials say Walt Disney World has reached a tentative labor agreement with its largest union group that raises starting hourly pay from a little over $8 to $9 this year.

The agreement announced Friday raises starting hourly pay to $9.50 next year and $10 in 2016.

Union members will vote whether to approve the proposed contract on Aug. 1.

The contract covers 21,000 full-time workers at the theme park resort, which has around 45,000 full-time and 25,000 part-time employees.

Union officials say the contract freezes employee health care costs in 2015.

Disney World and union officials have been negotiating since March, when the previous contract expired.
