IBEW Local 353, Toronto & York Region Labour Council
In the late 1960s, Wally Majesky rose from the Local 353 bully pulpit and became a force in the Toronto & York Region Labour Council along with other Local 353 activists. Their commitment to the NDP and support for labour, community and progressive causes were a natural fit for their brand of activism. In 1974, Majesky became Projects Director for the Labour Council. By 1980, he had become the Labour Council’s first full-time President. During more than 30 years of service, Majesky remained committed to working people. He opened doors for thousands of activists, and helped pull their talents and attention toward the broader labour movement.
