Section 1. In cases where there are a number of Local Unions involved in negotiations and bargaining with a major corporation or an association of corporations, the International Executive Board shall set up an Intra-Corporation Council. Such an Intra-Corporation Council shall be an administrative arm of the International Union and not a subordinate body. Such Local Unions so involved shall be members and shall participate through duly elected delegates. When the large corporation or national association has widely scattered branches, the Intra-Corporation Council shall set up Sub-Corporation Councils.
Section 2. The International Executive Board shall determine the geographical districts or occupational or other groupings in which Sub-Corporation Councils shall be established. The Intra-Corporation Council shall be composed of delegates from the Sub-Corporation Council.
Section 3. Directors to work with such Councils shall be appointed by the President subject to the approval of the International Executive Board.
Section 4. Voting at National Intra-Corporation Council meetings shall be based on per capita tax paid to the International Union by the various Local Unions participating.
Section 5. The purpose of the Intra-Corporation Council shall be to coordinate the demands of the separate members and to formulate policies in dealing with their common employer. The Intra-Corporation Council shall be convened not later than thirty (30) days prior to the opening of negotiations for a new national corporation agreement to formulate new contract demands. The Council shall deal only with matters pertaining to problems arising in their immediate corporations. It shall be understood that such Intra Corporation Council is not a legislative body of the International Union and shall not deal with policies of the International Union other than those concerning their own immediate corporation problems.
