(I guess you're talking about PostgreSQL 10. I'm not sure what OSS 10 is.)
The ability for Gather Merge to work with Init Plan values was only
added in , which was new to PostgreSQL 11. So you're not going to
make that work in PostgreSQL 10.
You could try crafting the query in such a way that an Init plan is
not used. e.g a CROSS JOIN, but not sure if that'll improve your
performance any. So you could try reducing the parallel_tuple_cost a
bit, which might give you a Gather, so at least the Seq Scan will be
done in parallel. The sort will still be serial though.
A btree index on table1 (c) looks like it might be worth considering.
