Disneyland may seem to be the place where dreams come true and, for many children and adults it could well be. However, if you are one of the Disney employees currently fighting for a promised bonus that did not materialize, your opinion of the corporation may be slightly less positive. In January of this year, bosses at several Walt Disney Co. theme parks promised $1,000 bonuses to around 125,000 employees, following cuts to the corporate tax rate. According to union officials, these bonuses are being withheld by Disney while contract negotiations are ongoing.
Are Bonuses a Given or a Bargaining Tool?
Although Disney allegedly told these 125,000 workers that they would be paid the bonuses in two installments, planned for March and September 2018, the corporation now states that the bonuses are, in fact, part of an ongoing negotiation relating to contracts. With these negotiations continuing for over a year so far, Disney has said that the bonuses will not be paid until proposed contracts are accepted and signed. Union officials have claimed that these contracts are not acceptable to them, or to Disney employees. The Service Trades Council is currently acting on behalf of approximately 35,000 Disney workers.
Withholding bonuses in the workplace is not a usual occurrence, but neither should it be accepted as normal behavior. If you are having problems of any kind at work, legal representation from a Los Angeles employment law attorney could be the solution.
