I think it is clear, but you still need to declare one such union for
each class.

Union-pointers sound like a neat trick.

Can't you generate headers with these union-pointer declarations
automatically, using gobject introspection?

I'm also not sure what are the ABI implications. Are unions compile-time
only? I guess you'd only change a pointer-union if the class hierarchy of
its corresponding widget class changes, which sounds like a good excuse to
recompile anyway...
