Protest In Disneyland Paris Leaves Park Entrance Littered & Blocked Off To Guests

Onet protests in Disneyland Paris

This morning, guests visiting the Disneyland Parc in the Disneyland Paris resort were greeted by a terrible mess at the park’s entrance. Employees from Onet – the independent cleaning and logistics company that serves Disneyland Paris overnight – have set up protests in front of Main Street Station.

Photos we have from the scene show toilet paper and general trash thrown about the Disneyland Hotel and Main Street Station area, which has since been blocked off to guests, but still hugely impacts that magical welcome one would hope for when visiting the resort. Handmade signs by Onet employees were also posted up throughout the protest space.

This isn’t the first time the Onet employees have spoken out against their unfair pay and harsh working conditions, so hopefully the situation will be evaluated and resolved quickly.

If they’re a third party contractor, shouldn’t they be protesting Onet instead of Disney? Their company is the one who negotiates the contracts with Disney.

About “why” there’s a protest, Paris is in the midst of a larger labor conflict at the moment too, to tie to a more global rationale. You can mention that without being political. Also, Disney has a history of combatting wage increases & whittling away the meager benefits it’s employees do have. (See the history of their conflicts with staff in Anaheim.)

Excellent comment. Disney likely is just trying to get things done more and more cheaply and of course the workers, even from a 3rd party contractor, suffer. I salute their right to protest against the corporate oligarchs!

Disney would be better off dumping this asset. Just the start of the European Armageddon.

They are responsible for cleaning overnight, they failed tondo so and left a huge mess.

Simple solutions are often the best, dismiss the company as not having help up to their end of the contract and hire overnight janitorial staff directly like the U.S. parks use, then Disney would be able to control working conditions, pay, etc. Instead of the third party company controlling this and Disney getting the Blane for something that isn’t really their fault.

Hate to say it, but good for them. They work for a company that has more than enough money to pay their employees a decent wage and yet they choose not to. Disney needs to realize that the employees are not going to continue to work for such little pay. I have talked to other employees of Disney and they have disclosed to me what they make. They have to live outside of the Orlando area to even afford a place and sometime with additional room mates! Unless you are in a higher up position, you cannot support a family… Read more »
