Here are some bullet points on the new contract (if ratified) and what it means for you.
On average, this contract will see an increase of 30% from August 31st to September 1 of this year. On average, Cast Members for Local 50 will see a pay raise of $5.48 per hour that’s $11, 400 per year. These numbers are the average for ALL Members of Local 50. That’s over 8 thousand Members. Some will see a raise more than this average.

We also negotiated a one-time sick day. This will be a one-time unpaid sick day to be used before August 31st, 2024. Similar to the old Call Dependent. A yes vote will allow the cast to use this after September 1st, 2023.
We also negotiated a one-time reduction of all disciplines. For example, if you have a written warning it will be reduced to a verbal. If you are a 5-year-plus cast member a p[ending termination will be reduced to a last and final written warning. Ratification of the contract will allow employed cast members to use this after September 1, 2023.
Cast Members with tenure with Disney are getting rewarded too with a bonus.
