The Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees has unionized the projectionists at the Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood.
The pact covers about a dozen projectionists, who will be represented by IATSE Local 150.
The union had filed a petition for recognition of the unit but was opposed by Arclight owner Dercurion Corp., which contended that a new contract was barred because of an existing contract covering maintenance workers and those who work at festivals and screens.
Dercurion took the issue to the Natl. Labor Relations Board, which ruled in favor of IATSE.
