Amending the SMART Constitution’s Article 21B

As noted in a Jan. 14 post to this website, the sheet metal and transportation divisions of the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers have reached agreement on a SMART Constitution governing the entire organization.

Local delegates of the SMART Transportation Division will have the opportunity to propose amendments to Article 21B of the constitution – the former United Transportation Union’s Constitution – at the SMART Transportation Division’s 2014 convention.

In accordance with Article 21B, Section 13, at any time 120 days prior (March 2, 2014) to the Transportation Division convention, proposed amendments to the SMART Constitution’s Article 21B (which comprises the former UTU Constitution, as reconciled by the SMART merger agreement) may be submitted by any subordinate body of the Transportation Division or International officer listed in Article 21B, Section 2(A), of the SMART Constitution.
