Disney reaches deal with Walt Disney World unions on safeguards for returning to work

LOS ANGELES, May 14 (Reuters) - Walt Disney Co and unions representing workers at Florida's Walt Disney World have reached an agreement on safeguards to protect employees from coronavirus, a union statement said on Thursday, removing one of the company's hurdles to reopening its popular theme parks.

The measures include mandatory masks for workers and guests and social distancing practices, according to a statement from the Service Trades Council Union, which represents thousands of workers at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
