Hotel workers at California’s Disneyland Resort OK contract

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Hotel workers at Southern California’s Disneyland Resort have approved a contract that raises hourly salaries by at least 40 percent over two years and allows staff to get bonuses that were promised last year.

The Los Angeles Times reported Sunday that the five-year contract establishes wages and benefits for about 2,700 workers. They include housekeepers, valets, cooks, bellhops, servers and other staff at the resort’s three hotels. Terms are retroactive to February 2017.

The agreement voted on over the weekend raises the starting salary to a minimum of $15 an hour, up from $13.25. It also pays workers a $1,000 bonus that was promised after the Republican tax plan was approved last year.

The newspaper says members of Unite Here Local 11 voted 96 percent in favor of the contract.
