That the International Union Constitution, Article III, Section 5, is amended to provide new language as follows:

Section 5. If a member remains eligible for membership and pays dues by the 15th day, or such other day specified in the local union constitution, of the month in which they become due, that individual shall be considered in good standing; provided however, a member who pays dues through a system of regular payroll deduction, bank draft, or similar system, shall be considered in good standing for so long as the member continues to pay dues through such deduction method. Any member who fails to pay dues by the day of the month in which they become due shall be considered delinquent, and upon failure to pay dues for two consecutive months shall lose their good standing status and stand suspended.


That all subsequent sections of Article III shall be renumbered.
