Disneyland Pact Rejected: Amid concerns about pay and retirement benefits, Disneyland workers rejected a proposed three-year contract that would have given them a 3% pay raise for each of the next three years. Workers represented by five unions under the park’s master services agreement rejected the proposed pact by a vote of 848 to 805. Walt Disney Co. and union negotiators were expected to resume talks next week, which could lead to another vote within days. Three years ago, workers also narrowly rejected a pact on the first vote but then approved virtually the same contract on a second vote within days. Employees rejected the latest proposal because of concerns over such issues as a reduction in medical benefits for retirees and work-rule changes.
