Welcome to the Constitution Committee Site

The CUSW National Constitution Committee facilitates the clarification, education and improvement of the CUSW Constitution and Policies. 

IMPORTANT NOTICE: A new and updated version of the Constitution is now available for download on the CUSW home page and Constitution page.

Your Resolutions make a Difference!


Members can and do make a difference.


The primary purpose of the Convention is to provide members with an opportunity to bring forward their ideas on how to improve our union. Members are invited to submit resolutions, and these resolutions have evolved our union into what it is now.


You are the change!


Here is a resolution brought forward by a member for the 2018 convention. This resolution was passed and implemented into the Constitution by delegates at the 2018 CUSW Convention.

Stay tuned for more monumental resolutions…


Your voice matters bring your resolution forward.
