Exclusive video: SEPTA union president speaks out

Want to know what caused SEPTA workers to go on strike? What kind of contract the union wants from management? Check out the video below. It's a short interview that I did with Willie Brown, who is the president of Transportation Workers Union Local 234. We discuss a number of topics, including the union perspective on the pension issue and how Brown gets to work in the morning.

Big thanks to Michele Tranquilli of the Daily News, who shot and edited the video.
