Union in strife as Disney and Teamsters prepare for talks

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — As negotiations start this month over wage increases at Walt Disney World, rebellion is brewing in one of the six unions that advocate for the resort's 70,000 workers.

For the first time in recent memory, they're putting together a slate of opposition candidates, promising to make this fall's vote for the leadership of Teamsters Local 385 anything but a heigh-ho-hum affair.

The unhappiness in Local 385 comes as Walt Disney World management opens talks with the six-union council, which represents about half the theme park resort's workforce.

Disney World is the only unionized theme park in Orlando, but given the vast size of its workforce, wages there have a big impact on what other hospitality workers earn in the area.

In recent weeks, both Singer and Coskey filed complaints with a review board that was created decades ago to root out corruption in the Teamsters and is still overseen by a federal judge in New York.
