Yes but when you ask for 3% every year, that works out to be a lot of money. Most people are lucky to get 1% raises and therefore the salary overtime gets to be extraordinary.

That 3% is also not to mention the bigger pension they are receiving. There are some unionized workers making more money in pensions than a working man/women in the private sector (doing the same amount of work).
