Oracle -- SQL SELECT -- UNION

I currently run the below to
get ID_DESC & ID_BRAND changes.

How can I make this query shorter
by using just a SELECT statement ?

       'ID_DESC' CHANGE_TYPE,

LEFT JOIN GML_IMPORT_ITEMMSTR_OS old
ON new.ID_STK_NO=old.ID_STK_NO

may be something like this.. but not sure what you are trying to do and why ?

SELECT new.ID_STK_NO SKU, new.ID_DESC NAME,
       'ID_BRAND' CHANGE_TYPE,
       old.ID_BRAND OLDVALUE, new.ID_BRAND NEWVALUE,

LEFT JOIN GML_IMPORT_ITEMMSTR_OS old
ON new.ID_STK_NO=old.ID_STK_NO
WHERE (
nvl(new.ID_DESC,'x') != nvl(old.ID_DESC,'x')
or nvl(new.ID_BRAND,'x') != nvl(old.ID_BRAND,'x') )
and

becasue you wanted everything in one query without using union, we need to have extra column in the above query to get the information you are looking for.

provide some sample data for 2 or 3 records in each table and say what output is coming for the old union query and what output you need without using the union query.

If for one record, it can be only either ID_DESC or ID_BRAND changed, try this

Select new.ID_STK_NO SKU, new.ID_DESC NAME,
