Following two years of negotiations, a draft collective agreement has been negotiated between Cineflix and the Factual Television Joint Council! Present on behalf of the council were representatives from CWA Canada, IATSE, and workers from the factual TV industry. The collective agreement forms part of the proposed settlement to the class action lawsuit filed against Cineflix in 2018.
