The German UNION car company started as Unionwerke Maschinenfabrik in Mannheim / Germany in 1885.               They offered their first truck in 1914 at the beginning of WW I.
Later it became UNION AG.
To my knowledge they offered  trucks only.
It was a short lived company without any commercial succes.
Not a single  truck  survived.

 This emblem is really a rare bird:
