Disneyland unions want a plan for regularly testing employees for COVID-19 before reopening the resort's two theme parks.
Disneyland's home of Orange County, California has seen an increased number of COVID-19 hospitalizations since Memorial Day.
Segments of Disney’s vast theme park workforce are opposed to reopening Disney World and Disneyland — though to varying degrees on each coast.
Portions of Disney World’s unionized workforce are being told to prepare to return to work, according to social media posts from union leaders.
The agreement includes mandatory face masks for guests and employees and paid sick leave for any worker who contracts COVID-19.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Disney World is furlough 43,000 unionized employees starting April 19. Their health benefits are guaranteed for the next year.
The coronavirus pandemic will keep Universal Orlando closed through at least May 31. While full-time workers will get their pay reduced, part-timers will be furloughed starting May 3.
For unionized Disney World workers, it's not a question of if they get furloughed, but when and under what terms.
