The company was in Chapter 11, for whatever reason, and the union wanted to lay more expenses on an insolvent company at the worst possible time.

What I am saying is that doing it at a time when your actions are suicidal from an employment perspective is short-sighted. They should have taken what they could get and then went back to the negotiating table once the company recovered, it is were to ever recover. But now we'll never know, will we?
