         ORDER CERTIFYING QUESTIONS TO THE SUPREME COURT OF CALIFORNIA

         SUMMARY[**]

         Certified Questions to California Supreme Court The panel certified the following questions of state law to the Supreme Court of California:

(1) Wage Order 9 exempts from its wage statement requirements an employee who has entered into a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) in accordance with the Railway Labor Act (RLA). See 8 C.C.R. § 11090(1)(E). Does the RLA exemption in Wage Order 9 bar a wage statement claim brought under California Labor Code § 226 by an employee who is covered by a CBA?
