People are still Grumpy about corporate governance at Disney ( DIS).

Disgruntled former Disney directors Roy Disney and Stanley Gold issued a letter Thursday accusing the Magic Kingdom of stonewalling, while Disney director Judith Estrin defended the company's governance at a meeting of the Council of Institutional Investors.

The ex-directors want Disney to disclose how participants in the company's 401(k) plan voted their shares at the company's annual meeting in early March, as part of their continuing campaign to oust CEO Michael Eisner.

After an unprecedented 43% of shareholders withheld their votes for Eisner's re-election to the board, Disney's board of directors relieved Eisner of his position as chairman, replacing him with lead independent director George Mitchell.

In the hopes of confirming their belief that Disney's employees have even less confidence in Eisner than shareholders at large, Roy Disney -- nephew of founder Walt -- and Gold want to learn what percentage of 401(k) participants withheld votes for Eisner.

"We believe that the confidential individual voting mechanism provided by the 401(k) plans is one of the best avenues for employees to express their views on company management free of possible recriminations by that management, and the resulting 401(k) vote is a bellwether for employee morale and attitude," a lawyer for Disney and Gold wrote in the letter they released. "Although the company's management may feel the vote of employees and former employees is not of concern, we prefer to leave that judgment to the shareholders."
