EURODISNEY THEME PARK STAFF DEMONSTRATE DURING STRIKE OVER MILLENNIUM PAY.
Striking EuroDisney theme park staff demonstrate outside the gates of the Magic Kingdom early 23 December. In the first call for a general strike in the park's seven-year history, several hundred unionists and workers, representing only a small percentage of the Disneyland Paris work force attempted to picket the park over millennium pay awards. The EuroDisney park was meanwhile open for business as usual.
