    ban together to do something

    They will always ban together to drive Gentile competitors out of business.

    My question is: does 'ban together' mean 'be united'?

    My question is: does 'ban together' mean 'be united'? No and yes. No, because the term is "band together" and yes, because the correct term can be used to mean to be united.
