Fletcher worked as a flexographic press operator for sixteen years at Macmillan Bathurst Industries in Guelph, Ontario. He served as president of the Guelph and District Labour Council from 1984 to 1988, and was a school board trustee on the Wellington County Public School Board from 1985 to 1990.

For the remainder of the term he was parliamentary assistant to the Minister of Citizenship. In early 1995, Fletcher announced that the University of Guelph was being given $93,900 from a provincial University Research Incentive Fund.
