    Would our raises be more than 1 precent if we weren’t sutting around having potlucks every couple months??

      I have seen any empirical research on the potluck/raise correlation, but the labor movement consensus is that nothing strikes fear into management like a good union potluck. Except for a strike, of course.
      BTW, the initial results from the SCOTUS’s anti-union Janus decision are in: UO faculty union membership continues to increase.
