Am I bound by my noncompete agreement?

Letters sent from Michigan mayor's office lead to union concerns

Letters recently sent out by Detroit's mayor's office stating that the city would no longer honor union contracts with fire, paramedic and police unions have caused quite a stir. By April 3, the letter was disavowed by the state-appointed emergency manager who was brought in to help put Detroit's finances in order. The emergency manager was assigned by Michigan's governor in an effort to get the city out of nearly $14 billion in long-term debt.The letters stated that since the city was in receivership status, it would no longer honor employment contracts made with unions going forward. According to the letters, the city was no longer required to participate in collective bargaining agreements, and they stated that the city was withdrawing from all mediations and arbitrations. Further, the letters also claimed that the Michigan Bureau of Employee Relations had been ordered to dismiss pending union issues.

Avon CEO's departure provides a good chance to discuss at-will employment

Lots of women around Detroit use Avon products. The cosmetics giant is one of the best-known names in the makeup industry and, as such, is actually quite a big player on Wall Street. Investor dissatisfaction may have played a role in the recently announced dismissal of CEO Andrea Jung, who will be replaced later this month. Under her watch, Avon's stock value has withered and the government began investigating allegations of overseas bribes.
