Sadly DLP Cast Members just don't cut it!

Not sure quite what I think of this (they did cancel the fireworks).

On the one hand, there is no point in striking if it doesn't cause any hurt to the employer. On the other, I kind of wonder how much damage is too much damage to inflict on the business that has to stay viable in order to pay you anything. This is really playing into the idea that Disneyland Paris is a bit of a mess compared to the other resorts.

Again, though, they won't get better pay and conditions by writing sternly-worded letters.

You would imagine DLP will secure the castle area earlier on the next strike day (tomorrow?)

I'm generally supportive of strikes but I think this is too far.

Protest in disney village, walk throughs into the parks at a push. Once strikes prevent others who wish to continue working from doing their jobs (which it seems like this is) they've gone too far.

A noisy protest by the gates will still be heard, and still force disney to the table. Sabotaging events that could have gone on without you is something else.

The requests are also quite high considering. We all need a pay rise but double time on Sunday isn't manageable if you choose to work in the leisure and tourism industry

I mean, last year was the first profitable one for the park in about 15? And it comes as a major park expansion is underway.

I don't see disney caving in easily on this, I think from his comments that Iger wants prices down before he accepts costs rising.

Yes the brand is taking a hit but guess what - prices are too high (above what the experience is worth in many eyes) and the parks are still full - demand isn't a problem and right now disneyncan afford to take a hit of customer demand to keep longer term costs down.

While I support their cause, this just isn't it chief. So many families with ruined vacations and Disney probably will have to refund them. Mouse is going to lose money pretty much regardless I think. Hope they come to a conclusion soon because this is going to be terrible for anyone going right now.

There's no one to blame but management here. It's in their hands to resolve this. CM's are only asking for better pay and better working conditions. If you have a trip planned in the very near future, I think it's better to reschedule or cancel. If you feel like complaining that this is going too far, you should probably also channel that energy towards DLP management since they have the power to end the strike immediately.

Can someone explain exactly what the demands of the workers are this time around? I've seen references to wages and conditions here and there, but nothing as clear as with the WDW CMs last year and I'm sure they do have a very clear set of demands.

+200€/month to their salary

CM run the engine. Without them, as you see, there's no DLP. Saying they're biting the hand that feeds them is not only untasteful, IMHO of course, but also factually wrong.
Should guests cancel en mass, there’s not as many guests left to entertain.

TWDC has recently shown its not adverse to downsizing employment levels.

Im not against better conditions. But the impact of certain strike methods can have the opposite effect

"The theme park’s staffers are demanding a raise of €200 per month, and are asking to be paid a double rate for Sunday shifts. They’re also demanding to receive some indemnities for the commute to Marne-la-Vallée, which is located about 32 kilometers from Paris."

Indeed!!!!! If Guests are fed up with Protesting CMs blocking Stars On Parade and Dreams every day/night....the CMs may not have a job to reurn too???
