    Disney Workers Union gets the initiative

    The Disney Workers Union in Hong Kong and Disneyland management plan a joint training initiative.

    It will be based on a government initiative and will help Disney employees in Hong Kong to learn English, useful in dealing with the 20% of visitors who currently come from outside the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and Mainland China.

    This emerged following a meeting on 11 June between a UNI group and Disney’s Director of Human resources Greg Morley and Director of External Affairs Katherine Wang.

    Re: Disney Workers Union gets the initiative

    An update to the previous story.

    Kitchen and cleaning staff in Hong Kong Disneyland have had their first victory in the quest for better working conditions.

    http://news.hkdlsource.com/story/184

    UNI reports: Kitchen cleaning staff at Disneyland in Hong Kong have launched a campaign to end low pay – and have already won their first improvements.

    Prompted by UNI’s organising campaign at the Lantau Island theme park, the cleaners launched a signature campaign calling for pay rises, more rest days and better working conditions that attracted the support of 77 of the 90 kitchen cleaners.
