The bill has been fixed to include the amendment.  Although clause 5 doesn't make sense:

"A three member panel with a representing from the union, the non-union employee and an independent arbitrator will decided if the non-union employee violated Clause 4."

sould that be "representative" and "will decide"?

Also, there's no clause 7.
