When businesses in California enter contracts with other companies, problems that develop may affect more than just those whose names are on the bottom lines.

Magistrate agrees with Disney firefighters in contract dispute

Following in the footsteps of union workers from California to the Northeast, union workers from Disney World have been engaged in a contentious battle with Reedy Creek Improvement District over their contacts.
