Why is a UNION ALL faster than a UNION?

UNION ALL faster than a UNION because for union operation server needs to remove the duplicate values but for union all its not. Thats why the UNOIN ALL is fater than UNION Operation. It is recommended that if you know that the union set operation never returns duplicate values than you must use UNION ALL instead of UNION.
