    Current and former custodians will get about $650 each. A union plans to hold a rally today.

    "A settlement in this amount of money is a good sign" that Disney was worried about its case, said Service Trades Council President Morty Miller.

    Nice spin but paying 119 grand for these 170 jobs to go away is a pittance for the corporation.

    In the "business" we call that a "drop check." The Mouse won that round.

    1) Sure enough.
    2) This frees the way for more and more outsourcing.
    3) Just shows the ineffectiveness of the local unions.
    4) Too bad for the workers who remain.
    5) Look for more of them to get transferred (like the valets at GF).
