I don't see anything wrong with giving them a pay raise since the company is doing so well. But you don't want to strengthen the union, they will just use any additional funding they get against you in future. Ideally you want to starve them of funding in fact. One way to do both would be to offer a big pay raise to non-union guards only. This would share the wealth while causing (or at least incentivising) an exodus from the union.
