Les Moffitt, Branch Organiser, Northern District

Les Moffitt was born in Bowen in 1957. When he was 23 he joined the ARU, later the RTBU. During his time with the Union he has worked as a Sub Branch Secretary, a Branch Councillor as well as a junior and senior vice president. Les has also been the President of the Queensland Council of Unions (QCU) Townsville Branch for nine years.

Les covers six Sub Branches in the northern district including the privately owned Cairns –Kuranda Steam (Savannahlander), PNQ and QR including the Gulflander. Les believes that unions are important because they give employees advantages in the workforce. They bring workers together and give them a collective voice. Les believes that the RTBU is special because it is driven from its grassroots.

In his spare time Les likes fishing and spending time with his grandchildren.
