whereischapek.com offered employees details, saying they could take part in in-person and virtual walkouts for 15 minutes during their work breaks at 3 p.m.

between Tuesday and early next week, followed by a full-scale walkout on Tuesday, March 22. However, an individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap walkout organizers are not associated with the business employee resource groups (BERGs) and Pride Advisory Group within Disney that have spoken out in recent weeks.
