    Well union negoations have been ongoing since the spring. Who knows what will happen. I hadn't heard the Oct 22 date. Currently there is not contract as it expired in the spring and Disney cast members are still working.

    Disney CM's that are union members are not very happy with Michael & Co. We were there during last strike and there was little change. Many of the Disney execs had to work for a few days, but the parks operated normally with just a few hiccups. Disney cannot afford to lose any more money since the hurricanes in August and September. I expect they will cave in sooner or later and give the unions what they want/deserve.

    There are too many that do want to work for Disney. They may get tight if things go bad but they will have the help.
