Constitution of the International Labor Communications Association, AFL-CIO/CTW/CLC
(Reflects changes adopted by delegates to the ILCA Convention on Sept. 7, 2013)

ARTICLE I
NAME
This association shall be known as the International Labor Communications Association, American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations/Change to Win/Canadian Labour Congress.

ARTICLE II
OBJECTIVES
The basic objectives of this association are to increase the effectiveness of communications in the United States and Canada between union leaders and union members, between organized labor and the general public and as an instrument of support for the goals of the AFL-CIO, CTW and the CLC. These ends will be pursued through the following basic channels:
Section 1. Efforts to improve the professional and technical quality of member publications, union sponsored media productions and on-line web sites by every means within the resources of the association.
Section 2. A continuing program for strengthening and expanding labor communications.
Section 3. The establishment and enforcement of a Code of Ethics governing advertising practices and such other matters as the association may determine through procedures set forth elsewhere in this Constitution. The Code of Ethics shall be an appendix to the ILCA Constitution.
Section 4. Exposure and elimination of publications and other media which misuse the name of labor for motives of private gain.
Section 5. The initiation and encouragement of state, regional and industrial labor press and communications associations.
Section 6. Outreach efforts to increase awareness of the labor movement’s changing demographics and growing cultural diversity, and to encourage that such diversity be reflected among the ranks of labor communicators at the national, state and local levels, and on the ILCA Executive Council.

ARTICLE III
MEMBERSHIP
Section 1. Membership in ILCA shall be open to the communications undertakings of the labor movement. Among these are the print publications, electronic publications, scheduled broadcasts, social media, media relations departments and other communications undertakings of the AFLCIO, CTW and the CLC, of their constitutional departments, constituency organizations, affiliates and institutes; of state, provincial or local central bodies chartered by the AFL-CIO, CTW or CLC, or by an organization of local unions, such as a building trades council; of national and international unions affiliated with the AFL-CIO, CTW or CLC, or of their local, district state or other constituent bodies. The communications undertakings of other labor organizations, such as other unions and nontraditional labor organizations, may also qualify for membership in the ILCA.
Section 2. A membership shall encompass all the communications functions of a given international or national, state or provincial, district or local body of a given labor organization.
There is no requirement for that body to sponsor separate memberships for each of those functions. Thus, for an international union, a single membership covers all the print media, internet presence and other communications functions of the International; it does not cover those of district councils or local unions affiliated with that international. Those would require their own memberships.
Section 3. All candidates for membership shall make written application to the Secretary, the application including a promise to adhere to all bylaws and regulations adopted by ILCA.
Applications shall be on a suitable blank prepared by the Secretary, making clear the qualifications for membership, and shall be accompanied by a certified record of endorsement or ownership.
Section 4. Names of applicants for membership shall be presented to the Executive Council for election or rejection. To elect an applicant an affirmative vote of a majority of the Executive Council shall be required. Decisions on membership by the Executive Council shall be subject to final confirmation by a majority vote at the next convention of ILCA.
Section 5. If any member shall fail to pay dues within three months after they are due, notice of delinquency shall be sent by the Treasurer. At the end of four weeks after receipt of such notice, if delinquency continues, membership shall be forfeited unless otherwise ordered by the Executive Council.
Section 6. Any member which, for any cause, ceases to be eligible shall forfeit all rights and interests in ILCA.
Section 7. Associate membership in the ILCA shall be open to:
• the communications undertakings of other organizations that demonstrate a community of interest with ILCA and:
-Have a primary purpose to advance the cause of workers, or
-Have made a special contribution to further the purposes of ILCA
• the communications activities of individuals and students whose work or activism demonstrates a community of interest with ILCA and strives to advance the cause of workers.
These associate members have the right of participation and voice (except as limited by this Constitution) but without the right to vote or hold office. The communications operations of organizations that qualify for associate membership may petition for full membership; their petition will be considered accepted by a majority vote of the full Executive Council.

ARTICLE IV
STATE, REGIONAL AND INDUSTRIAL ASSOCIATIONS
Section 1. The Executive Council shall issue certificates of affiliation to state, regional and industrial labor press and communications associations which demonstrate what the Council deems to be a sufficient community of interest among recognized and legitimate labor publications and/or media productions to sustain a viable association.
Section 2. Each affiliated association shall be responsible for the conduct of its own internal affairs, elections of officers, dues, constitution and bylaws, and membership requirements, provided that no affiliated association shall confer membership on a publication and/or media production expelled from ILCA for violation(s) of the ILCA Code of Ethics.
Section 3. Each affiliated association shall adopt, within two years of adoption of this Article, a Code of Ethics that conforms in principle to the ILCA Code of Ethics and a method of enforcing its own Code of
Ethics.
Section 4. Each affiliated association shall file with the office of the Secretary of ILCA, no later than January 1, of every year, an up-to-date copy of its Constitution, Bylaws and Code of Ethics.
Section 5. No affiliated association shall issue an emblem to its member(s) without: a) approval of the emblem design by the ILCA Executive Council and; b) certification to the Executive Council of rules governing use of its emblem.

ARTICLE V

Section 3. A fraternal associate membership fee of $100 per annum shall be paid.

No vendor shall be able to hold an elected or appointed position on the Executive Council.
In the event an elected officer leaves the entity the office-holder represented when elected, that officer shall resign forthwith.

An exception to the resignation required in the preceding paragraph may occur if an officer is dismissed from his/her communications position, but the officer’s collective bargaining representative formally challenges the dismissal through an established grievance procedure.
