“Union”, in the context of voiceovers, generally refers to being a member of SAG-AFTRA. The union is in place to keep me safe from untrustworthy producers, clients who later decide they don’t have the money to pay me, and so on. The union also acts as my employer, since I’m technically self-employed. They take care of my health benefits, retirement, etc. like most other full-time employers would. If you have further questions about SAG-AFTRA and what that means, I would encourage you to visit their website at http://www.sagaftra.org/.
