Each Constitution shall specify the officers of the District, the terms of office to be served, the procedure for nominating and electing officers, and the authority and duties of each officer.
The District President shall chair the Convention which shall be conducted under the supervision of the Secretary of Labor and under such rules and directions as he may prescribe.

14. The court shall retain jurisdiction of this matter in order to provide such further relief as may be necessary to effectuate the purposes of this order until such time as the Secretary of Labor shall certify to it that there has been full compliance with the terms of this order.
15. It is recognized that the Secretary of Labor was not a party to this action. Nevertheless, this order is made with the view that it is the proper order under the circumstances.
