Or it's because the owners know that the players aren't just going to accept whatever the owners want, so they try to pressure them by taking away another paycheque.

To say the owners are willing to negotiate couldn't be further from the truth. They want the PA to accept their last proposal without any changes. The fact that the players are willing to bring in a mediator and the owners aren't, tells you all you need to know about the willingness to negotiate.
