You work elsewhere in the theater and in the entertainment industry? We also have collective agreements with various employers in these sectors with favorable working conditions. Contact us to inform yourself and you will see.

Why unionize?

A union is a democratic tool that allows each member to express their opinions and have a voice concerning their working conditions. In fact, during a union meeting, the members decide on union demands made during the process of negotiation of a collective agreement.

The establishment of a union in the workplace also bring less arbitrary treatment by the employer because the employer must respect pre-negotiated working conditions that are part of a collective agreement.
