Flirtation with leader of dockers' union (9)


I believe the answer is:


'flirtation' is the definition.
(both can mean a casual relationship)

'leader of dockers' union' is the wordplay.
'leader of' suggests taking the first letters.
'union' becomes 'alliance' (alliance is a kind of union).
The initial letter of 'dockers' is 'd'.

'with' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for dalliance that I've seen before include "Toying - trifling - delay" , "time-wasting action" , "A casual romance" , "waste of time" , "Affair" .)
