    Unions representing 21,000 workers decide company 'can do better' with a contract

    Members of Walt Disney World's largest labor group narrowly rejected a tentative labor contract early today.

    More than 52 percent of Service Trades Council voters rejected the proposed three-year agreement, which would have included pay raises of 4 percent for many workers and health-care options for the group's roughly 21,000 members. The vote was 2,870-2,583.

    Unions representing about one-third of Walt Disney World's work force approved a three-year contract late Wednesday.

    The vote was the second in a month for members of the Service Trades Council, a group of six unions that represents 21,000 full-time workers. It passed 3,056 to 2,676.
