Disney union could strike

Members of Walt Disney World's largest union group have rejected a contract proposal for a third time.

They've authorized union leaders to call a strike if necessary.Union members cheered when the vote was announced. A strike isn't likely any time soon because union officials first plan to ask for a federal mediator.

Those who oppose the contract say the proposed wage increase is too small to offset the increases in what they would pay for health insurance.

The contract proposal from the Walt Disney Company was offered to six unions that cover 40 percent of the theme park's 52-thousand-person work force.

Two of the unions advised members to reject the proposal. The other four unions recommended approval.

Wonder if Mickey Mouse is a scab?
All joking aside yet another example of the cost of health care being out of control in this country.
