When the subcontractors running Disneyland World in Orlando agreed to the labor union’s demand to reopen the Disney parks after a strike there ended on Sunday morning, one effect has been to relieve pressure from the workers there. A union representative said some workers remained at the parks, observing the picket lines in smaller numbers, but that the working hours for most union members had been restored.

Now, in California, the Unite Here union is preparing for another shot at unionizing the parks after claiming in 2015 that concessions the Walt Disney Co. had made — limiting health insurance benefits, for example — had pushed its members to strike.

Reportedly, Disney’s response to the union’s call for a reopening of its two California parks is to consider offers from Unite Here. And a union official said, “We’re very satisfied” that the negotiations were now under way.

The union, Unite Here, represents several thousand hotel workers at Disneyland. The most recent contract expired last September.
