The general article in By-Laws is intended to cover various matters which are of particular concern to the Local Union but which are not specifically covered elsewhere. It is generally advisable to minimize the number of items contained in the general article since a member attempting to find a provision normally tends to look under appropriate headings rather than in the general article.

Provisions which often appear in the general article are two sections along the following lines:

  • (a) All Local Union Officers, Committees, Stewards and other members handling funds or other property of the Local Union shall, at the completion of their duties, turn over all papers, documents, funds and/or Local Union property to the properly constituted Local Union Officers.
  • (b) Wherever in these By-Laws a pronoun is used it refers equally, where the reference is applicable, to both men and women in the singular and in the plural.
