The New York Post: Unions at Disney World accuse company of holding $1K bonuses hostage

Mickey Mouse is accused of holding hostages.

A coalition of unions at Disney World has filed a federal unfair labor practice complaint accusing the Mouse House of withholding the $1,000 cash bonuses due their 35,000 workers — unless the employees accept the company’s contract offer.

Disney DIS, -0.88% proudly announced in January that thanks to expected greater profits coming its way under the Trump tax overhaul it would pay its 125,000 US employees $1,000 bonuses.

But the unionized workers at the “Happiest Place on Earth” are a little less than happy. The union, whose members mostly make less than $11 an hour, claims the workers haven’t received the bonus cash — and that Disney says they won’t unless they accept the offer of a 50-cent raise over the next two years and a $200 signing bonus.
