DETROIT (WKZO) -- Detroit financial emergency manager Kevyn Orr is asserting his authority over city employee union contracts.

Orr has reportedly sent a letter to the state Bureau of Employment Relations to be able to assert his right to alter or dissolve collective bargaining agreements.  Bill Nowling, a spokesman for Orr, says the purpose of the letter was to convey their understanding of the law and at no time have they said they are nullifying contracts.

Under the Emergency Manager law, Orr is not obligated to continue collective bargaining or enter into any arbitration hearings.
