Cineplex has reached an agreement with one of its union that represents workers at seven theatres in Quebec.

Local 262 of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) said the agreements include wage adjustments for the first year and CPI-based increases of up to 2.5% for the following two years.

The deal also includes bonuses of $2 an hour for VIP room cooks, 75 cents per hour for team leaders and retroactive pay to June 20, 2022.

The agreements cover front desk, box office, bar and concession staff. Over 500 employees work in these theatres, according to IATSE. The agreements apply to Cinema Quartier Latin, Forum, Cineplex Laval, Cinema Brossard (Dix/30), Cinema St-Bruno, Cinema Beauport and Cinema Ste-Foy.


Members approved the agreement with 96.5% voting in favour.

IATSE represents more than 800 front of house employees in cinemas, live venues, and other entertainment facilities in Quebec, and is affiliated with the Fédération des travailleurs et travailleuse du Québec (FTQ), it said.
