Fred Glass has been a member of the CCSF faculty for the past twenty five years.

He believes that, through labor studies, union activists and the general student population can gain a stronger grasp of the meaning of civic involvement in a democratic society.

He is the author of 70 Years: A History of the California Federation of Teachers (1989). His ten-part documentary video series on the history of the California labor movement, Golden Lands, Working Hands (1999), aired on most PBS stations in California, and every public high school in the state has a copy. He has also written many articles on labor and media related topics for union and academic publications (Labor Studies Journal, Afterimage, Film Quarterly, Labor's Heritage, etc.), as well as more topical pieces for daily newspapers (SF Chronicle, Sacramento Bee).

Fred has been the Communications Director for the California Federation of Teachers since 1988. He oversaw the media work for the three year contract struggle of lecturers in the University of California system, which ended with path-breaking gains for contingent faculty. He served two terms as President of the Western Labor Communications Association, and three terms as a vice-president of the International Labor Communications Association. He currently co-chairs the Speaker's Commission on Labor Education for the California Legislature. He is a member of AFT Local 2121, the San Francisco Community College Federation of Teachers.
