EIWPF National Coordinator
Model Legislation & PACE
Kevin Sullivan has been with the Elevator Industry Work Preservation Fund (EIWPF) since the fall of 1998. He started out as Research Coordinator working with the IUEC Organizing Department and Local Unions on finding solutions to maintain and increase industry market share for IUEC Signatory Companies. This was done through the creation and development of the EIWPF’s Licensing and Inspection Program, which is now called the Elevator Safety Bill. Kevin helped develop the legislation and he worked on its implementation in Alabama, California, Florida, Maryland and Vermont.
Kevin started the Professional Approved Continuing Education Program (PACE). The PACE Program provides elevator mechanics with 8-hours of safety and industry related continuing education required to renew a State issued Elevator Mechanic License.
Kevin is an instructor in the EIWPF’s Training and Educating and Activist Membership Program (TEAM). The TEAM Program is designed to train new members on the basics of IUEC History, Labor History, Labor Laws and IUEC Benefits.
Kevin administers the Industry Advancement Program (IAP). The IAP is designed to assist IUEC Signatory Contractors in becoming more competitive when bidding on maintenance projects that are being maintained by a Non-Signatory Elevator Company.
Kevin is an alternate member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers “ASME” and he serves on the very important Maintenance Repair and Replacement committee. In December of 2011 Kevin became and is certified as a Qualified Elevator Inspector (QEI).
Kevin graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a Bachelors of Arts (BA) in Political Science in 1990. He is currently a candidate for a Master’s Degree in Union Leadership and Administration at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, MA.
