Explanation:
Does it have to do with the expression: yellow-dog contract
An agreement between an employer and an employee whereby the employee disavows membership in and pledges not to join a union during the period of employment.
Syn. anti-union agreement, ironclad agreement
Agreement signed by an employee stating that he would not join any union as long as he remained an employee of the company.
= contrat de jaune n m
Contrat individuel d'emploi par lequel l'employeur exige du travailleur que celui-ci s'abstienne d'adhérer à un syndicat et de participer à son activité.
Notes : Ce genre de contrat est interdit par la législation dans la plupart des pays. En France, on désignait ce contrat « le document » v.g. « faire signer le document ».
Syn. contrat antisyndical n m
Sinon, s'il s'agit du sens littéral, je ne vois pas le problème...

I don't think it's up to us to guess what it's all about when no context is given...
Is Amy looking for 'le chien est jaune' (the dog is yellow) ?
Then this should be a BrowniZ-question...
