It’s a tough time for Disney’s host of “non-essential” Cast Members who are on furlough now that the parks are closed.

Disney has previously reached an agreement with two unions about furlough for their members, and now it seems like they’ve brought another into the fold.

According to the OC Register, Disneyland and the Independent Employee Service Association have agreed on terms for hourly security Cast Members to be furloughed while the parks are closed. The agreement will allow union members to keep health insurance benefits coverage, educational support and additional employee assistance programs.

In a joint statement released by Disney and union officials, the two groups said, “This agreement provides an easier return to work when our community recovers…We are grateful to have worked together in good faith to help our cast and members navigate these unprecedented times.”

Disney is reportedly still in talks with other unions to provide support for the 28,000 out of 31,000 Disneyland Cast Members that are part of unions.
