Walt Disney World Cutting 125 Jobs, Outsourcing to Contractors

Walt Disney World plans to cut 125 cleaning jobs and outsource them to contractors, but union officials say they're not aware of the change.

A Disney spokeswoman says affected workers will be offered other jobs at comparable pay and hours. The jobs include kitchen cleaning, carpet cleaning, roadway cleaning and deep cleaning work.

Disney officials say they're looking for more ways to be effective, efficient and maintain high standards. The contractor that will handle the jobs hasn't been picked yet.

Officials with UNITE HERE! Local 362 say they haven't been approached about the change and call it outrageous.
