This article should set forth the standing committees of the Local Union exclusive of the Election Committee, and Bargaining Committees. Article 15 Section D of the Constitution references those standing committees that a Local Union should establish and may include any other committees the membership may desire.

The method of appointing or electing the membership of the committees, and of filling vacancies on the committees should be specifically set forth in a section of this article. (If the Local adopts a provision for the Executive Board designating one of its members as a member of each committee as indicated above, this provision should be referred to at this point as providing for an additional committee member.)

There should be a provision as to how the committee chairperson is chosen, i.e., election by committee members or designation of appointing official.

The function or duties of standing committees may be specifically set forth in this article. In any event, the article should contain a provision similar to the following:

These committees shall perform all duties assigned to them by the Constitution and By-Laws and such additional duties as they may be directed to perform from time by the Executive Board or the membership.
