Local 262 Wins Decision for Cinema Brossard

IATSE Canada logo

MONTREAL, QC – IATSE Local 262 has emerged victorious with regard to the local’s recent dispute over bargaining rights at Cinema Brossard. The local already held bargaining rights for employees of the cinema. The dispute centered on Cineplex having added four VIP theatres to the existing cinema and then refusing to apply the existing agreement.

The local filed an application with the Quebec Labour Board, asserting that its bargaining rights and agreement also apply at the VIP Cinema. On February 7, 2014, the Labour Board issued its decision in favour of Local 262. The 65 employees working at the VIP cinema are now covered by the agreement and will soon become members of the Union.
