Disney has ended discussions about their new Attendance Policy with the master services unions. They have made clear that they have the right to implement a policy and are only obligated to discuss it with the unions, not negotiate it.
We are disappointed that Disney does not appear willing to address many of our concerns such as call continuing, travel issues, or being sent home early by cast medical. They have made a few changes but as it stands, the policy has many changes that will adversely affect cast members.
Disney will send a final policy to the Unions next week and then begin rolling it out on July 19, with implementation on Oct. 2, 2022.
Currently, there remain many unanswered questions. Once the policy is finalized and shared with the unions, Local 324 will schedule a virtual meeting for cast members to answer questions about the policy.
