Following a public comment period, the Federal Trade Commission finalized consent orders settling charges that two glass container manufacturers, O-I Glass, Inc. and Ardagh Group S.A. illegally imposed noncompete restrictions on workers across a variety of positions.

The consent orders against O-I Glass and Ardagh place a number of requirements and restrictions on the companies, including a provision that prohibits them from enforcing, threatening to enforce, or imposing noncompetes against any relevant employees. 

The Commission vote to approve each final order was 3-1, with Commissioner Christine S. Wilson dissenting.
