At one point in time, back in my early RR union days, when workers still had some power left, a "strike" over a "health and safety" issue "failure to act" like this grievance might have been allowed by courts. And that very "threat" would have had the effect of forcing the carrier to respond and negotiate in good faith. And, it would have been much more unlikely that a court would have issued that stay order over this, back then. With today's majority of "corporate friendly" judges predominant on our Federal Courts, there is from the workers perspective not much RLA left to protect their rights. That's because these judges have effectively undermined what little was left, of what was an already very limited power to strike under the RLA. Nowadays, as a result, the unions have lost much of the leverage to force good faith negotiations by carriers, and thus, to protect their members, in situations like this.
