You have never seen the Parks look like this before!
This year has been a tumultuous one for the Disney Parks. In addition to all of the drama surrounding Disney’s movies, layoffs, and Park malfunctions, the company has also had to deal with the ongoing Cast Member strikes. Cast Members at numerous Disney Parks have gained international attention for taking a stand against Disney’s wages. Employees at the theme Parks feel that they are underpaid for their work and are demanding Disney come up with a suitable agreement.
While the strikes are now over at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, they are just heating up at another Disney theme Park location.
Disneyland Paris Sees Major Cast Member Strikes
Disneyland Paris is one of the most popular theme parks in the world. People from all over the globe visit the Park to enjoy the various attractions that this gorgeous Park has to offer. However, for many Cast Members who work at the Park, it’s not all that magical. In the last few years, there have been several protests by Cast Members at Disneyland Paris regarding their working conditions. Now, we are seeing these employees mobilize more than ever in their fight against Disney.
Just last week, parades were canceled at Disneyland Paris due to the strikes. It seems that that may very well be the case today due to another major strike taking place.
Cast Members Plan May 30 Protest
Beginning at 9 a.m. on May 30, 2023, Cast Members at Disneyland Paris will be mobilizing for another strike in the Park. UNSA Disneyland Paris posted about the strike, saying;
We, Cast Member DLP of Disney, woman or man, former or not, executive or not, unionized or not, member or not, representative or not, are ALL UNITED, only one answer is necessary A GENERAL MOBILIZATION on Tuesday, May 30th. “
Guests visiting the Park will certainly notice the protests raking place down Main Street.
Hopefully, Disney and the Cast Members of Disneyland Paris will be able to come to an agreement and sort out their issues. It is tragic to see such a magical place filled with so much protesting and anger. Cast Members do so much to make Disney a magical place, and they deserve to be compensated fairly for their efforts.
