$89M (50M of which are pension related), it was $211M before.

Maybe the PA feels accepting a 5 year term limit, a 5% variance and a 10 year CBA is worth more than $89M over many years. So they offered 8 year term limit with 25%, variance, an 8 year CBA, and added an escrow cap.

Instead of countering, maybe upping MW by another $15M, and going to 7 years across the board for term limit and going to a 10% variance and rejecting the escrow cap, the owners cut off negotiations.
