The Constitution of the United States Workers Party is the governing document of the United States Workers Party. It was made official on November 10th, 2008, during Rocco Baldelli's Presidency. The constitution was written by Lukasz Makowski with the help of ProggyPop. The constitution was amended successfully on August 5th, 2009, after a week long vote by general membership, following the unanimous approval by the Executive Board. The amendments were written by GoBucks and proposed by Zcia because GoBucks was not serving on the E.B. at the time. The most recent revision (Revision 5) was passed by the general membership of the party on September 13, 2010, and can be seen in full below.
