A lot of U.S.-based unions use the word 'la union' rather than 'el sindicato' in Spanish because depending on what country people are from, Mexico in particular, 'sindicato' is frequently associated with corruption, political parties, etc.. 'La union' isn't proper Spanish, but it has become a part of the vocabulary for many immigrant-based unions in the U.S., UNITE-HERE included.
