      In the USA a "union" refers to a different kind of plumbing joint, rarely used for faucets.

    A faucet typically has a body that screws onto the water line and a valve seat that opens and closes to control the flow. A valve stem is operated to raise and lower the valve seat. The rubber compression seat is called the seat or seal.   The stem is sealed with stem packing (old) or an O-ring (new) so that it can be turned and not leak.  The stem fits inside through the bonnet of the body and a bonnet nut holds the the packing or O-ring in place.  The place where the old packing is placed inside the bonnet is called the packing gland.
