Walt Disney World workers approve new contract, increase in pay this month
Walt Disney World and the Service Trades Council Union have come to terms on a new five-and-a-half-year agreement that will increase the non-tipped minimum wage at Walt Disney World to $9 an hour starting this month.
“I am proud we will be able to continue to provide our cast an industry-leading employment package that reflects the important role they play in our guests’ most special memories,” said George A. Kalogridis, president of Walt Disney World Resort. “Having started my career here as an hourly cast member, I know how crucial all roles are to the success of our resort.”
The agreement will also raise the minimum wage to $10 an hour in July of 2016.
