Union: 30% of Furlough Disney Union Members Have Not Received Benefits

Cast members will soon be returning to work at Walt Disney World, but many of them have yet to receive unemployment benefits since the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak.

Unite Here Local 737, the local union, says of the 19,000 members working in food, beverage and housekeeping at Disney, only 2,000 are back at work.

The union says 30% of its members have not received anything in unemployment benefits.

Union leaders say this week is the first major call-back to work of cast members.
