Which is of course a great line to push when your decisions have caused immediate losses to everyone involved.
I've heard that, too, but if anything, I think hurting themselves financially in these negotiations more than necessary is going to weaken their resolve, and hence their leverage, in the next negotiations more than it strengthens them.

They may have hurt the owners, but they hurt themselves more, and leverage is a comparison between two sides.
