Constitution & Bylaws

The AFEU Constitution is the overarching document that establishes operation of the union.  It covers such items as: Objective and methods; Membership, eligibility and dues; Executive Board, Officers and duties; Elections; Delegates to the IFPTE convention; Arbitration and negotiations; and Bylaws and amendments.  The AFEU Constitution (current version dated 11/15/17) is available here.

Two different groups of bylaws govern AFEU’s operations:

The Executive Board bylaws are the rules that govern the behavior of your elected officers. The Executive Board bylaws (current version dated 8/31/16) are available here.

The Steward Corps bylaws are the rules that govern the behavior of your stewards — the people who represent and defend you as a union member. The Steward Corps bylaws (current version dated 6/30/10) are available here.

Additionally, our parent organization, IFPTE, constitution is available here.
