Disney Teamsters In Disarray As Union Gears Up For Wage Negotiations

With negotiations set to 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.

Many employees who dress up as costumed characters are "Teamsters," and some of them are fed up with how their union is being run.

For the first time in recent memory, they're putting together a slate of opposition candidates.

That promises to make this fall's vote for the leadership of Teamsters Local 385 anything but a heigh-ho-hum affair.

About half of Local 385's members are Disney workers.

The rest include UPS drivers, hotel employees, food service workers, rental car employees and other drivers across 20 Florida counties.
