I have a question regarding the attached documents. I have been researching these documents that I had requested from the City of Petaluma in reference to the Owner Participation Agreement between the Petaluma Community Development Commission and LOK Petaluma Marina Hotel Plan dated April 17, 2001 1) KenKrall061 is from pages 19 and 20 of that agreement. 2) KenKrall063 is the First Amendment to that agreement. I was hoping you could clarify the meaning of paragraph 3 and 4 of the First Amendment Most importantly is section 314.3, stating minimum wages of 10 and 11 dollars per hour. How does this First Amendment effect this? What exactly does "shall be of no force or effect" mean? Many employees, tipped and non-tipped receive far less than $10/hour. Did voting the Local 2850 in cancel section 314.3? Thank you very much,

You accidentally posted a new question, but I sent it to customer service to process a refund for you.

I'll review and get back to you shortly.

The amendment makes the section not apply to any union members, since the meaning 'no force and effect' means that it is non-applicable.

Instead, the collective bargaining agreement with the union and any memoranda of understanding would apply.

So, essentially, voting in the union did cancel section 314.3 for union members.

I hope the above information is helpful.

Please let me know if you have any clarifying questions as I want to ensure that you are completely satisfied with my service.
