I am totally confused by this statement by the judge. it wasn't about them being more f****d than us!!

The Postman wrote:In the recent LTB I received it states that;
"In defending the case in court, while we firmly believe Royal Mail to be abusing the terms of our agreement, it has become clear that the legal test for obtaining an injunction turns upon which party is likely to suffer the greatest financial damage in the event that it is either granted or denied."
So my question is, in deciding which party would suffer the greatest financial damage, did the courts take into account how much leverage will be lost by the CWU by Royal Mail delaying the start of strike action past the Black Friday period and possibly past Christmas also. Did they take into account how much every employee of Royal Mail combined stand to lose in pay alone as no doubt after Christmas we'll have to strike for longer periods to have any effect. Also what about the difference from what we could have achieved in our pensions by hitting Royal Mail hard asap and what we will not be able to achieve as they can now simply wait it out?
