“I’m united in Local Love because I get to be an active participant in mentoring the next generation of individuals that will lead our community.” Len Elliott, OPSEU, Administrative Staff Union
Len is the type of guy who puts everyone before himself. He invests in up-and-coming members as a mentor and guide. Len encourages those around him to always ask questions to ensure that health and safety are a priority in their workplace. A committed activist, he speaks up on behalf of everyone in need and fights for the benefits and rights of his fellow workers. Len isn’t afraid to do what it takes to get the job done right. He’s even taken part in a train-pull in St. Thomas where he singlehandedly dragged a train to raise funds for United Way.
When COVID-19 struck our community, Len made it a priority ensure the safety of his members, leading to increased health and safety measures being instituted across the workplace. Len is a firm believer that membership makes the union, and by supporting each other and standing up for what is right, incredible impact can take place.
