On November 23, 2013, Local 262 of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, theater and cinema, filed a certification demand to represent workers of cinema Famous Players Colossus Laval (owned by Cineplex Entertainment).

On January 7, 2013, the Labour Relations Commission granted certification for 110 staff members of the Colossus. Those workers join 500 more staff members of Cineplex who are represented by the union. IATSE 262 now represents the majority of the front of the house staff of Cineplex in the province of Quebec.

IATSE Local 262 has signed new contracts with Cineplex Entertainment and employees of the Colossus also want to benefit from better working conditions as their unionized colleagues.

The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, theater and cinema, now represents more than 600 employees at Cineplex Entertainment in Montreal and Quebec and more than 700 employees in live theaters and cinemas in Quebec.
