Convention is the governing body of the UTE. For the purpose of representation at a Convention, each Local is entitled to one (1) delegate with full voting rights for each block of two hundred (200) members in good standing or fraction of this number during the calendar year preceding the Convention. Every delegate must be a member in good standing of the local. These delegates elect and provide direction to the elected national officers.
Convention decisions are binding. This is when UTE By-Laws and Regulations are adopted, modified or rescinded and it is when the union’s administrative budget is adopted. Convention occurs every three years.
