About  bylaw amendments and resolutions
A resolution passes at the convention if a simple majority (i.e., more than half of the delegates voting) votes in favour. Bylaw amendments must pass by a two-thirds majority.

Bylaw amendments and resolutions must not contravene the Constitution and Bylaws of CWA Canada or the Constitution of the Communications Workers of America (CWA), our wider union organizations.

While there is no deadline for proposing resolutions, any resolution submitted after May 1 may not be translated or included in the delegates’ convention package.
