Scott Zadow

  • Business Rep

Business Representative Scott Zadow has been an IBEW member for the past 24 years and has served in his current role for the past five. Growing up, Scott realized early on that the union offered excellent wage and benefit opportunities for those who were ready to roll up their sleeves and get to work. So he did just that, applying and joining the apprenticeship program right after high school.

There, Scott quickly made what would become lifelong connections with his fellow brothers and sisters, connections he still counts as his very favorite part of IBEW membership more than two decades later. During his time with IBEW, he has had the opportunity to be an active participant and leader, serving on the NWOLC E-Board, as a trustee on the JATCU, and even taking on the roll of Lead Negotiator on three different contracts. Scott has also played a role in the coordination and execution of the Summer Picnic and Golf Tournament, both of which have seen record growth the past 5 years. The Golf Tournament raised over $15,000 in 2019 for the Sick Fund.

Outside of his IBEW commitments, Scott enjoys spending time with family, fishing, golfing, and playing softball.

That’s Zadow like Shadow, in case you were wondering!
