Also, is a 5% chance of an extra two years of job security worth half a year of real salary?
Although your math obviously works $600-800M>300M. They got a lot of rights including the variation and 7yr contacts. The x factor here is if they took that deal and didn't fight back, we would have been here at the end of this CBA, and again. At least if/when we have another lockout, the owners will think twice and expect a battle and from the PA's perspective, they will be negotiating from a better position than they would had they accepted the old offer.
