Suppose we apply a function like Union of more than a list, it is done as follows (mathematica 6).

Union[{1,2,3},{2,3,4}] ...(1)

yielding an output {1,2,3,4}. But

Union[{{1,2,3},{2,3,4}}] ... (2)

is not a valid input. But note that, if we are feeding the input of the function Union which comes as an output of some other function, we usually end up in this problem as shown in (2) as output of a function is usually a list. Is there a way out?
