With which Avro library can't you read a file with a union schema?
Unions are a standard feature and every implementation should be able
to read a file with such a schema.

You can view the file contents with the 'tojson' command line tool:

java -jar /path/to/avro-tools.jar tojson --pretty myfile.avro

(You can also use the 'getschema' command line tool to view the schema
of the file.)
