Can I trouble you to PM your particular occupation to me and what union governs it? I'd appreciate it.
I'm curious, though, if you feel it's acceptable to cap individual earnings and yet your bosses (the managers of the company, shareholders, etc, whatever the case may be) are free to reap as much profit off the back of your labour as they can with no limiting factors whatsoever?
I'm not union, I'm in facilty management, but I work with trade unions all the time. My dad is UA Coordinator (aka union boss).

Owners are taking all the risk, they have the most vested into the company, of course they should make the most money.
