[R] seriesMerge

I want to merge two timeSeries (union) and get a resulting timeSeries.
using union or merge I got a data.frame and when I tried to convert it
to timeSeries the data was corrupt. Is there a more straight forward
way to take two timeSeries and merege them for a resulting timeSeries
of the union of both?
