A is the best choice.

B) its English-speaking member's prejudice is incorrect usage. It should be
prejudices of its English-speaking members
C) the union did not acquisce in support + of + ....
but it acquisced to something by supporting something else
D) has the same problem as B)
E) has a very awkward usage in its supporting of

There is also another problem here. It is a choice between while and where
While - means Whereas or during the time
Where - means A position in which or a place

Using while creates ambiguity because we dont know whether it is talking about a contrasting situation or about a time.

Using where does not create ambiguity because this sentence is not about a place but either about a situation or about a time. Therefore where must indicate a situation.
