CUPE 3261 Bylaws

Below find CUPE 3261’s Bylaws in PDF. These Bylaws serve to protect the rights of all members — Full time/Part time, Casual, UofT Press, 89 Chestnut and Faculty Club — and provide the framework for responsible governance of the Union.

Note: We are in the process of updating our bylaw document. There are two amendments that have been approved in 2023 but are not yet reflected in the document below: 1) Adding an additional seat to the Full-Time Part-Time negotiating committee which is dedicated to a Part-Time member, and 2) Changes to our executive elections procedure, which can be seen here.
