Seven-year IBEW 1245 member David Sparks has joined the union staff as a Business Rep. He will be working with the IBEW 1245 members at PG&E’s Diablo Canyon Power Plant (DCPP), filling the shoes of longtime DCPP Business Rep Pat Duffy, who is now working full time on the plant’s P-25 Project.
Brother Sparks has been working for 1245 in a temporary capacity since August of 2020. Previously, he worked at DCPP for nearly a decade, most recently as an Electrical Control Tech in the electrical maintenance shop. He served as an IBEW shop steward for several years prior to coming on staff at 1245.
“Thanks to the hard work by IBEW 1245 staff and members over multiple decades, my life and my family have been positively impacted dramatically in numerous ways, and we are very thankful for those impacts,” he said. “When the opportunity to start my temporary assignment in Aug of 2020 presented itself, I saw it as an opportunity to become more involved in continuing to preserve and enhance the working conditions of current and future IBEW 1245 members. I see this transition to permanent as continuing that trend, and am very grateful for the opportunity.”
Sparks is happily married to his wife of 17 years, and has two sons (ages 7 and 5). He loves motorcycles and is also an avid outdoorsman. He prefers to spend his free time out in nature, hiking, camping, and backpacking.
