And, in response, the Service Trades Council Union, which represents 43,000 Cast Members at Walt Disney World, has released a statement on their Twitter account.
Now that select Cast Members are being called back to work after being temporarily furloughed for Disney Springs’ phased reopening scheduled for May 20th, one of the largest unions at Disney World has just reached an agreement about paid time off.
First reported by the Orlando Sentinel, the Service Trades Council Union, which represents 43,000 Disney employees, has secured paid sick leave for its members should they become ill and need to quarantine themselves.
Things have been a little up in the air about what Cast Members jobs will look like until Disney World reopens (since the parks are closed “until further notice” currently).
Although Disney has already stated they will be furloughing non-essential salaried and hourly non-union employees beginning April 19th, they have also started to extend this agreement to many of the unionized workers at Disney World too.
