The threat is uncertain and ambiguous making it difficult for Royal Mail and shareholders to make decisions. Whilst announcing a strike actually makes it easier for the shareholders to make decisions on whether to jump ship or buy more shares.
In this case, the CWU is giving RM a longer rope and more time to think.

But in the blurb I got today it says they are still offering to buy out the legacy payments?

Because progress has been made. Why send out ballot papers when Royal Mail are conceding on the proposals outlined? A long way to go but it's a decent start.

There will be no agreement until pay , pensions and the pipeline issues are resolved and we are miles and miles apart on there.

They want a cash balance or DC pension scheme, we don't.
They want to move our start times by up to 2 hours, we don't.
That's miles apart and there are many more points of conflict.
What they've taken off the table was never really on the table so what's changed?
