The STCU posted a statement to their Twitter page, sharing that, “We were disappointed to learn that the Covid-19 crisis has led Disney to make the decision to layoff Cast Members.

They continued on by adding that, “Unlike at the other theme parks and hotels in Central Florida, Disney workers have a voice at the table because of our Union. We have begun negotiations with the Company about this news and its impact to Union members.
