Any possibility that whoever installed it put some adhesive on it to seal it onto the pipe? Can you take a knife and cut a vertical line in it to release some friction? This assumes you have enough hose to reinstall it properly.

Many times a union will not spin off is because it is in a bind. Can you push on the opposite end of the pipe to try to ensure it is in good alignment so the union can be turned. You may need 2 people, 1 to push on the pipe and other to spin the union. You could also lightly (stress lightly) tap on the union (with a rubber mallet) to dislodge any debris that may have built up.
