Reuters: Disneyland Character performers announce plans to unionize

Performers of Disney's cartoon characters such as Mickey, Donald and Goofy at its Disneyland theme park are looking to join Actors' Equity Association, a labor union representing those who work in live theatrical performance.

The union said on Tuesday it would seek voluntary recognition from Disney Resort Entertainment when a majority of the workers have signed union authorization cards.

If the company declines to recognize the union, Equity will then file the cards with the National Labor Relations Board, it added.
