We help create Disneyland's Magic
We are the more than 6,500 food and beverage cast members at the Disneyland Resort. Our members have been a part of the union since the 1950s, with the earliest contract in possession dating back to July 1, 1957. Originally, there were only 5 classifications of work. Now we encompass 25 classifications. We perform everything from preparing and creating treats like turkey legs and churros to serving grant and exquisite meals at the famous and exclusive Club 33. If you are eating in the parks, our members are making that happen.
By joining our voices together to build an inclusive union that serves all cast members, we gain the power to win improved wages, benefits, and working conditions from Disney.
By representing and advocating for the rights and well-being of Disneyland Resort’s food service workers, we create increased happiness for our cast members, so they, in turn, can make our guests happy.
By negotiating and administering strong contracts, we safeguard the future of our cast members and their families.
Early into the tenure of the current Local 50 leadership, our executive board was looking for more ways to support and give back to our members. They decided that a scholarship would be their priority and a sound investment in our members, and their children's futures. After getting member approval to finance six $1000.00 scholarships over the Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 semesters, the executive board got to work. The scholarship winners were decided in early December by a volunteer teacher and police officer, and we awarded the winners their scholarships after the new year. With the success of the initial round of scholarships, the leadership is continuing the program indefinitely.
