While there have been multiple changes across the board with Disney experiences, the company has made the complex decision to lay off 28,000 employees domestically.
At the moment, both non-unionized and unionized Cast Members will be affected. Groups, including Workers United Local 50, Service Trades Council Union, and resort entertainment staff, have provided details about what this may mean moving forward.
Unite Here Local 11 has detailed in a Facebook post that the union will have about 950 of its 3,000 members laid off on November 1st. Although the union states that it will continue to bargain for job security and healthcare coverage, Unite Here Local 11 urges people to contact California Governor Newsom.
At this time, Disneyland has not reopened to guests, even though there are current discussions about the parks and resorts. State legislators and online ads have been pushing for theme parks to open once again, stating that it would bring more jobs back to California.
However, Disneyland doesn’t have a firm timeline when its parks will welcome guests back. We will continue to keep you updated on reopening news and additional details about the Cast Member layoffs.
