  1. The standing bylaws committee in our union local had two proposals submitted to our bylaws committee, for changes to the bylaws. Our meetings are held @ 7:00 p.m. on the third Wednesday of every month. Both proposals submitted to the bylaws committee were submitted by two individual members. The first proposed change to the bylaws was to change the monthly meeting times from 7:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and was verbally proposed. The second proposal was to change the monthly meeting times from 7:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and change the meeting day from the third Wednesday of every month to the third Tuesday of every month. This proposal was written and submitted. The chairman of the local (also self appointed chair of bylaws committee) took a poll one evening and asked every member if they preferred a 6:00 p.m. or a 5:30 p.m. meeting time. One more point, our local union is subordinate to a District Council and an International, neither bylaws change would affect District Council Bylaws or International Constitution. Questions: Can an appointed, standing bylaws committee reject one proposal over another? Can an appointed, standing bylaws committee combine two similar proposals submitted by different members? Can a chair of the bylaws committee or president of a local conduct a poll as a tool to make a decision as to which proposal to bring to the membership for a bylaws change? Thank you for any help. Sincerely Robert
