Projectionist and technical staff at Cineworld have voted overwhelmingly to accept a 3 per cent increase in review talks for 2010/11.

Commenting on the outcome of negotiations, Willie Lesslie, national official said:

"This pay increase is all the more significant given the current economic climate and the uncertainty surrounding the future of the industry as digital projection expands.

"The settlement, which compares favourably with agreements in the sector and with pay awards generally, is a testament to the tenacity of the union's Cineworld sub-division and reflects the support of projection and technical members at a difficult time."
