A properly seasoned cast iron pan "should" be pretty non stick as it is, however if more oil is needed, then a basting brush across the bottom should suffice if you are watching the fat in your food.  Using anything with additives like pam shouldn't be used on cast iron (in my experience), just as soap should never be used.  
Sounds like the pans need a good re-seasoning before their next use.  Good luck!!
