Customer Question

Hello, I have been working for my current US company (with Canadian presence), since 2001. I am in Windsor/Ontario and commute when needed to Detroit/US. My contract was in $US and I have been paid since the beginning in the converted equivalent in $CA. The company is now reviewing my salary and wants to switch to a $CA base, but with a rate that is lower than these days rate (basically last year's rate + a 3% increase), which is basically a pay cut for more than 12%. Is this something allowed, and what are my options? Also if they breach the contract, am I still bound to the non-compete agreement in it? Thanks a lot.
