IBEW 48 Business Representative Elected as Northwest Oregon Labor Council President


Our own Scott Zadow was recently elected as Northwest Oregon Labor Council President. Below are some excerpts from the write up in NW Labor Press. 

"Zadow, 43, said he’s honored to serve in the role, having learned a lot from NOLC leaders like Bob Petroff of the Machinists and Sam Gillespie of UFCW. 

Zadow grew up solidly union, and followed both his father and his uncle into IBEW Local 48 and later to union office. His father, Mark Zadow, was an organizer and rep at Local 48; his uncle, Grant Zadow, was Local 48 business manager. Both are now retired.

In 2014, after 18 years in the field, Zadow was hired as a business representative. Following his mentor, the late Lee Duncan, he was assigned to serve the roughly 600 members of Local 48’s Sound and Communications unit. Appointed as a NOLC delegate by Building Trades leader Willy Myers to represent the trades, Zadow organized karaoke meet-ups at a local bar to build fellowship within Local 48 and among union activists across the local labor movement.

“Where my heart is for this is to make it better for the next generation,” Zadow told the Labor Press. “That’s what was instilled to me; that’s why my parents fought the labor fight.”

The newly elected officers will serve through the end of 2023, the unexpired remainder of the offices’ four-year terms.
