UK strike by border guards has been called off

The Government was in Court today, it seems they were successful in treating the strike of border guards as illegal. They have been negotiating with the union since 2009, and only a minority of employees voted for the strike. Personally I would be happy to see them strike beginning the day after the olympic games finish. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-18973127

They let too many in anyway! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-18945047

I don't believe it got as far as court or did it?
Looks like both sides have actually talked and come to some sort of an agreement.
