Jeff Elias

President, AEEF-CWA Local 1300

In my day job I work in the Station Relations department, where I proudly represent WGBH to the rest of the public media system. I have been honored by the opportunity to similarly represent fellow members to WGBH management.

As a union, we are here to speak truth to power – together, we have a voice. We advocate for ourselves and we negotiate better working conditions. One of our biggest principles is that we shouldn’t have to choose between “Love it or leave it.” There’s a third option – make it better. And that’s why we’re here.

 We have a say in what happens at this great institution. The more active we are in our union – and this is OUR union – the more we can do for each other.
