Your assessment of the domain as
x cannot equal 3 and x cannot equal 2 and x cannot equal 0
is clearly correct, however your description should be the domain is (-∞,0)∪(0,2)∪(2,3)∪(3,∞), the parentheses indicating that the intervals do not contain their end points

Thank you!
If I understand correctly, the U denotes the fact that "the parentheses indicate that the intervals do not contain their end points".
If there is no U, then the parentheses indicate that the intervals are inclusive of their end points.
I never before encountered the symbol of U.

No! the parentheses ( and ) indicate no endpoints.  The symbol ∪ means set union.
