|UPTE-CWA 9119 Constitution
Article XV: By-Laws
Section 1. The UPTE CWA 9119 Systemwide Executive Board may adopt By-Laws to specify regulations that bind its own functioning. Such By-Laws can in no way supersede or be inconsistent with this Constitution. In case of any question or conflict, this Constitution always takes precedence.
Section 2. All By-Law amendments shall be presented to the UPTE CWA 9119 Systemwide Executive Board and forwarded to the presidents of all UPTE CWA 9119 campus locals. No decision on acceptance or rejection of By-Law changes may take place until the Systemwide Executive Board meeting following the meeting at which such amendments are presented. There must be a minimum of one month's time between the meeting at which the amendments are presented and the meeting at which a decision is taken with regards to them.
Section 3. Amendments to the By-Laws may themselves be amended without requiring that a decision be postponed until a subsequent UPTE CWA 9119 Systemwide Executive Board meeting as long as such amendments do not substantially change the content of the original amendment.
Section 4. The UPTE CWA 9119 Systemwide Executive Board shall be empowered to make decisions of interpretation and application of the By-Laws. Any such decision may be appealed to the UPTE CWA 9119 annual convention, which is the highest decision making body of UPTE CWA 9119.
