NEWS: Disneyland Announces That They Have Reached a Furlough Agreement With Ten Additional Unions

While Disney announced last week that they would be furloughing “non-essential” Cast Members, it has taken some time for Disneyland to reach agreements with unions to provide the same benefits to members during this stressful economic time.

Now Disneyland has completed negotiations with 10 other unions and added them to the furlough agreement.

According to the Orange County Register, Workers United Local 50, Master Services Council, Craft Maintenance Council, International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees locals 706, 504 and 923, Laborers’ Local 652, Operating Engineers Local 501, and Teamsters Local 495 unions have all agreed to Disneyland’s furlough requirements.

These unions represent food and beverage workers, pyrotechnicians, sound mechanics, stage managers, stage technicians and other Cast Members throughout the Disneyland Resort. The agreements will allow union members to maintain their health insurance coverage, educational support, and other benefits beginning April 19th.
