Phil Hu

Phil worked as a classroom teacher in higher education for nearly 20 years.  He transplanted from southern CA a few years ago leaving behind a tenured position, a defined benefits retirement, and an elected school board position to join the fight for the cause of Labor.  Phil has been an elected leader in his own faculty union, worked as an independent consultant on numerous political campaigns, served as communications and political director for various organizations, and sat on two different school boards (San Gabriel USD and Alameda USD).  Working for UESF is an ideal fit as it affords him the opportunity to work in the two fields that he most closely identifies with–academia and labor.
