Each local has the authority to manage issues particular to its local, as well as issues that affect the interests of its own members, so long as the local’s work or regulations do not contravene any collective agreements or the Constitution, bylaws or policies of PSAC or UPCE. The names and areas of jurisdiction of UPCE locals are set out in a regulation established by the national executive. In the case of a jurisdictional dispute between locals, the question will be referred to the national executive for examination and decision. The decisions of the national executive in such cases are final and binding.
