the union collapsing
I don't regard this as a dealbreaker, or even as a bad thing. I think there is agreement on some of the goals between Progressives and Conservatives (I'm using the Progressive definition here, where everyone who is not a Progressive is a Conservative. I personally identify as a small-l libertarian), but for some of the goals, the two sides want things that can't be reconciled.
Let's take discrimination as an example since you mentioned it. It seems to me that the difference between equality of opportunity and equality of outcome is not just an implementation detail; someone who is in favor of equality of opportunity is looking for something that someone who is in favor of equality of outcome is not, and vice versa.
My point is this: I don't think there is an answer on this that will satisfy everyone, and deciding it at the federal level (but really you need global; what about people in other countries?) is really just imposing one side's solution on everyone.
