Seven-year IBEW 1245 member Garrett Markwood has joined the IBEW 1245 staff as a Business Representative. Brother Markwood will be working with Local 1245 members at PG&E in the East Bay and Mission areas.
Markwood began his career at PG&E in 2013 as a Gas Service Rep in San Rafael, and later transitioned into the role of Service Mechanic.
A dedicated union activist, Markwood has served as a Shop Steward, Safety Steward, Advisory Council member, and member of the Election Committee. He has also filled in as a temporary/rotational Business Rep on two previous occasions.
“The work that Local 1245 has done to secure the wages and benefits that we enjoy at PG&E has changed my family’s life,” said Markwood. “To be able to help other working class families reap those rewards is an opportunity and an honor. I’m looking forward to working with Local 1245 staff and representing our members.”
In his free time, Markwood enjoys spending time with his wife and kids, and working on projects around the house. He also enjoys traveling, and looks forward to a time when he can resume that activity again.
