Members of the Philadelphia Carpenters Union posted a seven-minute video to YouTube.com Thursday, championing their fight against the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

"We produced it to show what's been going on outside the convention center on and off for the last three months," said Martin O'Rourke, spokesman for Metropolitan Regional Council of Carpenters. "It's been harmful and not good for anybody. It's unfair."

The dispute heightened when leaders of two unions - the carpenters and Local 107 of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters - failed to sign a new Customer Satisfaction Agreement by a May 5 deadline imposed by Convention Center management. The union contended it had until May 10 to sign – a contention Convention Center management disputes. The case is before the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board.
