All members of the GMB belong to a branch which may be industry or workplace based. As well as being part of a branch structure,GMB members will be allocated to one of three sections of the union:
- Public Services Section
- Manufacturing Section
- Commercial Services
Each section is headed by a National Secretary based at GMB National Office. The National Secretary and National Officers report regularly to a Section National Committee who advice the GMB Central Executive Council (CEC). Members, through their branches and workplace representatives, can participate in the Union's democratic decision making by submitting motions to our annual Congress. There are 9 regions within the GMB.
