Purpose of the Committee

The bylaws of each local union, with the UAW Constitution, set out the rules by which the local union operates. Even well-established locals may need to modify or amend their bylaws. The work of this committee sets the stage for how the local union will function.

Members of this committee are responsible for submitting original and/or amended bylaws provisions to the local union membership for discussion and approval. This committee monitors the required local union bylaws amendment procedure to ensure compliance with the current bylaws and constitutional provisions.

Once the amended bylaws provision(s) has been approved by the local union membership, this committee monitors the process to ensure that the amendment is immediately submitted to the International Executive Board pursuant to Article 37, Section 3 of the Constitution.

This committee can also teach members how to read the UAW Constitution.

Join this committee to strengthen your local union’s bylaws and structure.
