Disneyland Cast Members have voted to ratify the contract touted by Disney as their “last, best, and final offer,” and will not be striking.
The contract, which was ratified by Disney California Adventure Cast Members on November 17 but rejected by Disneyland Cast Members, was the subject of a second vote yesterday. Cast Members had two choices: accept the contract or go on strike.
With a majority in favor of ratifying the contract, a strike was avoided. The new contract includes wage increases over the next two years, plus a one-time bonus for Cast Members hired before June 17, 2011.
Per the new contract, wages will increase on the following schedule:
- $1 per hour increase, retroactive pay from 6/16/2021
- $1 per hour increase effective Nov. 17th, 2021 (moved up from June 2022)
- $1 per hour increase on 6/16/2023
Cast Members with 10+ years of service would be eligible for a one-time bonus of up to $2,000 depending on the length of employment and full- or part-time status.
