Disneyland Workers Reject Contract: Amid a swirl of frustration and embarrassment, Disneyland and union officials are expected to return to the bargaining table later this week after workers voted down the same contract proposal they rejected last month. On Monday, workers at the Anaheim amusement park voted 742-729 against an offer calling for a 3% pay increase in each of the next three years. The vote, which affects about 3,200 workers at Disneyland, surprised Disneyland and was a setback to union negotiators who unanimously endorsed the offer and tried to get it passed by conducting the vote in person the second time instead of mail ballots. Despite the second rejection, the five unions at the theme park cannot call a strike because fewer than two-thirds of the voters rejected the proposal.
