'Where' in this case refers to a 'place in time' i.e. 'Whereas in the past the union had...'-would be the longer construction of this sentence. That's the reason where can be used in this sentence and is correct.

Hi Experts,
Can someone explain this sentence please? Usage of "Where" in this case doesnt seem to be consistent with explanation in most of the books.

Since Where is followed by Once, it can indicate a particular point in time.

While means when something was happening at the same time.

Title of a poem by H.P. Lovecraft --> "In a Sequester’d Providence Churchyard Where Once Poe Walk’d"

(meaning at one point in the past)
