Victory for hotel workers after four-year battle with Disneyland Resort over wages and health care

The Disneyland Resort in Anaheim reached a five-year collective bargaining agreement with 2,100 hotel workers, ending a four-year dispute.  The dispute bogged down recently over healthcare cost increases in Disneyland's proposed contracts.

The new contract, which extends through January 2017, includes wage increases and a decreased workload for housekeepers. It also gives workers a choice to remain in the union healthcare plan, with employee contributions of $7 to $10 per week, or transition to one of Disney's healthcare programs and be eligible for a one-time bonus.  The new contract provides job security and seniority protection for both full-time and part-time workers.
