Chicago, IL


That the International Union Constitution is amended by adding a new subsection H to Article III, Section 1, to read as follows, and relettering the subsequent section as appropriate:

H.  The International President is authorized, with the approval of the International Executive Board, to establish alternative forms of membership, including special rules governing the rights and obligations of such members, for groups of workers for whom regular membership is determined to be inappropriate based upon the nature of the workers’ employment relationship or limitations on their legal rights in the workplace.  Any special rules governing the rights and obligations of such members shall, to the extent required by law, be subject to the approval of the next regular biennial convention.
