Yellow dog

A Yellow Dog contract is legal contract or agreement made between and employer and an employee, wherein the employer agrees to employ the employee, and in exchange the employee agrees not to join or associate with a labor union. In the United States, Yellow Dog contracts are illegal, though right-to-work laws in several US states effictively defeat union formation, but through a different mechanism.
Yellow Dog Dingo is a character in The Sing-Song of Old Man Kangaroo, one of Rudyard Kipling's ''Just So Stories.
