Chief Steward Dave Duncan started his career with Constellation in the Radiation Protection Department at Quad Cities Station on May 19, 2008, and promoted to Radiation Protection Technician in February of 2010. Brother Duncan first became a steward for his department in October 2012. He held that position until he became a Chief Steward in July of 2019. Dave attended the Nuclear Conference in 2012, the Utility Workers Coalition Conference in 2017, and the Arbitration school at the University of Illinois in 2017.

Dave and his wife Taylor live in Morrison Illinois with their daughters, Bella (16), Ava (14), Kinley (12), and Kendall (10). All 4 of Dave’s daughters are active in sports which keeps him busy with either watching or coaching. One of his other favorite things to do when he gets time is to enjoy a round of golf.
