Suncor wins fight to continue drug testing
Suncor Energy has notched another win in their multi-year legal battle over random drug and alcohol testing at it’s Alberta sites. Suncor started randomly testing employees in safety-sensitive positions back in 2012. The union representing workers called this an infringement of privacy. An arbitration panel ruled in favor of Unifor before that decision was overturned by Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Blair Nixon last year. Unifor appealed Nixon’s decision, but the Alberta Court of Appeal dismissed the Union’s challenge. The Union has vowed to continue it’s fight against a policy which they call abusive.
