Constitution & Bylaws Committee

The bylaws of each local union, with the UAW Constitution, set out the rules by which the local operates. In a new local, this committee's work sets the stage for how the local will function. But even well-established locals may need to modify or amend their bylaws. 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 bylaw amendment procedure to ensure compliance with the current bylaws and constitutional provisions. Once the local union membership has approved the amended bylaws provision(s), 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. Join this committee to strengthen your local union's bylaws and structure.
