Lawyers from Cavalluzzo LLP have reached a proposed settlement agreement with Cineflix in the Cineflix class action. The settlement agreement provides for more than $1 million in benefits to pay employment standards entitlements (overtime pay, vacation pay, holiday pay) to employees and contractors who work or have worked at Cineflix in production, pre-production, and post-production since October 2016.

Under the settlement agreement, Cineflix will set aside a minimum of $1 million to pay class members, and possibly sign a union collective agreement with CWA Canada and IATSE.
