At the Ontario RAGM on September 9, Executive Director Arden R. Ryshpan presented figures on her staff review of how the new two-level contract system is working so far.
Because the new two-level provisions in the CTA only took effect at the beginning of this calendar year, we have only six months of data to go on. Also, a good portion of recent contracts were offered under the old scheme. So, the results are preliminary, but they are positive. Staff will revise the report early in the new year, once a full 12-month cycle of contracts has concluded.
Arden has posted the results, along with an update on the two new independent theatre agreements, in her online journal.
