Disneyland Resort workers earning minimum wage will start getting paid $15 an hour by next year, the theme park announced Thursday.

The three-year contract will represent nearly 10,000 employees with four labor unions.

The agreement follows months of protests at the park over wages. Last month, a petition with more than 120,000 signatures was delivered to Disney headquarters in Burbank.

A tentative agreement was reached earlier this week between Disneyland Resort and Master Services Council.

Disney is the parent company of ABC7.
