1407.01000 – General Principles
In the interpreting contract bar ordinance of County, PERB looks for guidance to the practices of the NLRB. As a legislative enactment, however, County ordinance it is not subject to discretionary application “to waive or apply it in order to effectuate its policy underpinnings.” (NLRB v. Circle A&W Products Co., supra., 647 F.2d 924.) Rather, interpretation of ordinance must be approached as with a statute in an effort to ascertain the intent of the legislative body so as to effectuate the purposes of the law.
