What you miss in the video is the introduction where the anchors talk about how collective bargaining also played a key role in the labor dispute now ongoing with the NFL. That’s the topic of next week’s San Diego Explained, which airs in the 6 p.m. newscast on Wednesdays on NBC San Diego.

For more on collective bargaining, ProPublica has a short explainer too.
