Confirmed. I've get the same problem on some of my layers.
Moreover if both merged layer's attribute tables have the same field's name, Union tool does not consider it. At result we have table with field names: NAME, NAME_1, NAME_2... It will be useful to merge such fields (with the same type and name) into one column.

This is related with #2629. Also here is another problem: when field names trimmed and suffix added we will have duplicate names and get error when initialize shapefile writer. I found three tools with this problem: union, intersection, symmetrical difference
Patch to fix this problem (evaluate field name lenght, check for duplicates and display warning messages) attached
