Usually many teams work on a national scale for specific needs, but people in the teams does not represent Asunaro workers and anyone can work in the teams. If needed, a few people will be elected and be in charge for the job.

Every local branches are at the equal terms. Currently, there are 6 local branches,[3] 4 local semi-branches,[4] and several other local communities.
