Yes, where the same condominium has more than one building, the co-owners may create one or more secondary unions by an absolute majority vote. The interest of this organization lies in the autonomy of management of each building. The secondary union is managed by a co-ownership trustee who may be the same as the principal union. The secondary trade union has its own budget and can go to court.

The secondary union is a legal person separate main union..

Its purpose is to manage, maintain and improve one or more buildings independently.

The secondary trade union shall be established within the main trade union by a vote at absolute majority co-owners.

There can be as many secondary unions as there are buildings. The co-owners of different buildings may decide among themselves to create a secondary union.
