Below you will find the bylaws for United Campus Workers- Communications Workers of America Local 3865, written and adopted by membership. Bylaws changes are able to be proposed and voted on at our annual Statewide Convention in September.



UCW believes that our universities, colleges, and higher education systems, like all our public services, should be bedrock democratic institutions in our communities. These institutions are threatened by an economic and political consensus that prioritizes profits before people, and by an agenda that would privatize all public services. This agenda sees workers as just another cost, and diplomas as just another commodity. This foundational document was written and adopted by membership in 2012.
