Each officer should bring their local union contract book along with their local union By-Laws (if you have your own local union by-laws). We will be providing Constitutions and By-laws for those that go by the International’s By-Laws and Amalgamated By-Laws. Be prepared to learn your duties and how to run your local union effectively and smoothly.
