Decision on Random Alcohol Testing
On June 14, 2013, the Supreme Court released its decision in CEP Local 30 v. Irving Pulp and Paper, in which it upheld an arbitrator’s finding that a random alcohol testing policy was unreasonable. Our clients CEP 707 and the Alberta Federation of Labour were interveners in the matter. See the decision here.
