Apart from its trade sections and associations, the GWU also has five branches :
This branch coordinated by Margaret Magrin, represents the interest of the Gozitan workers which are members of the eight sections of the General Workers' Union. This office is in constant contact with the Union's Head Quarters in Valletta.
Female Works Committee
This branch deals with equality issues. This advisory committee is made up of representative from all sections of the Union. Its term of reference is to advise the National Council and the Central Administration on various femalre workers' rrelated issues.
Institute for Health & Safety
The Statute of the Union provides for an Institute for Health & Safety. The Institute which is already in place within the GWU folds is headed by the Union's President Victor Carachi as approved by the National Council, and composed of competent persons, not necessarily Union members. The terms of reference of the Institute are to promote health and safety on the places of work, to conduct research and to enchance all activities related to health and safety.
Committee for Persons with Special Needs
Like all the other branches, the Committee for Persons with Special Needs is emphasised in the Union's Constitution. It is composed of a chairperson appointed by the National Council and other persons with interest in persons with special needs. The aim of the Committe is to identify specific problems faced by workers with special needs and to advise the Union's Administration how to tackle such problems for the benefits of persons with special needs.
Social Activities Branch
This branch was set up in 1997 to provide social activities for the union's members and their family. The committee of this Club is formed up by representatives from the GWU's trade sections. Since its inception, the Social Club has organised various live concerts but its main event remains the annual song festival 'Unity in Melody' which is one of the main events in the national calendar.
