REPORT OF THE BY-LAWS COMMITTEE

MARCH 2002

Denis Lalancett Item 11(b)

The members of the By-Laws Committee, Michelle Tranchemontage, Chris Aylward and myself, met on February 18 and 19 to revise the by-laws and regulations in both languages in anticipation of the next UTE convention in July 2002. The Committee recommends to the Executive Council the adoption of the following changes, for submission to the by-laws committee of the UTE convention. These changes are cosmetic and do not alter the content of the by-laws and regulations.

The Committee recommends that the by-laws mentioned below be changed as follows. These recommendations for changes to the content are made to clarify or improve the logic of a By-Law, or to respond to an expressed wish of the majority. Naturally, if the Executive Council accepts them, it will be to submit them to the By-Laws Committee at the UTE Convention.

BY-LAW 2 SECTION 4

Whereas we now have a new procedure before an independent third party.

Be it resolved to add to by-law 2 section 4 after grievances independent third party reviews,

BY-LAW 6 SECTION 5

Whereas a majority of the participants at the conference of presidents have expressed the opinion that observers, including the RVPs, should be given voice more than once,

Whereas this opinion has been expressed in different ways but always with a view to improving participation, while not tolerating abuses,

Be it resolved to change by-law 6 section 5 k) by adding: may have voice once each day.

BY-LAW 8 SECTION 2

Whereas during a temporary absence the President may not be in a position to give his or her approval (illness or reasons beyond their control),

Whereas provision must be made for replacing the President in order to be able to continue to function, and whereas the current regulations require the agreement of the President,

Be it resolved to change by-law 8 section 2 paragraph 3 by removing the words: and with the concurrence of the President.

Be it furthermore resolved to change by-law 8 section 2 paragraph 4 by removing the words: and with the concurrence of the President.

BY-LAW 10 SECTION 10

Whereas this section has led to a great deal of controversy,

Whereas the UTE has always emphasized education and information through member participation,

Whereas it would make it possible to have an observer on every committee,

Be it resolved to change by-law 10 section 10 by adding up to a maximum of four (4) observers.

BY-LAW 14 SECTION 3 NEW

Whereas the UTE Executive Council has already decided to implement this practice,

Whereas steps must be taken to ensure that this practice is implemented and observed given its importance,

Be it resolved to change by-law 14 by adding a new section 3, which would read as follows:

Section 3 new: All investments coming from UTE funds shall be ethical investments.

Respectfully submitted,

Denis Lalancette

Chairperson of the Committee
