NEWS & MESSAGES

 

 

** ATTENTION MEMBERS **

 

Starting December 1st, 2017, in accordance with our Random Testing Standard (as part of our Drug & Alcohol Policy and supporting standards), Suncor will begin random drug and alcohol testing of employees working in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB) who are in safety sensitive or specialized positions. Contractors will also be required to conduct random testing.

 

NOTE: according to the Drug and Alcohol Policy, a Safety Sensitive Position means a position in which an employee has a key or direct role in an operation where if actions or decisions are nor carried out properly could result in a serious incident affecting the health or safety of employees, contractors, customers, the public or environment, or an inappropriate response or failure to respond to an emergency or operational situation. For the purpose of the drug and alcohol policy, fit for duty means you are able to safely and acceptably perform your duties without any limitations due to the use or after-effects of drug or alcohol.

 

  • This policy is now based on a Judge of the Queens Bench of Alberta decision to overturn a previous Arbitrators ruling in the hearing of Suncor vs. Unifor

  • Further information will be provided as received
