union() function

The union() function concatenates two or more input streams into a single output stream. In tables that have identical schemas and group keys, contents of the tables will be concatenated in the output stream. The output schemas of the union() function is the union of all input schemas.

union() does not preserve the sort order of the rows within tables. A sort operation may be added if a specific sort order is needed.
