This announcement comes on the heels of the sad news that the theme parks would be cutting 28,000 jobs as a result of the continued financial struggles due to COVID-19. Some 6,700 Walt Disney World non-union employees will be losing their jobs in December. This information comes from a notice given to the state by Disney yesterday. According to the details submitted, these layoffs will go into effect starting on December 4th.
In an official announcement, Disney Chairman Josh D’Amaro announced that the company would be cutting 28,000 us employees in a division that covers the theme parks, Disney Cruise Line and Imagineering. Several unions have already made statements suggesting that negotiations are ongoing concerning the extent of the layoffs.
