Update: Alberta’s Court of Appeal Upholds Decision re: Suncor Random Drug Testing

Alberta’s Court of Appeal has upheld the decision of the Court of Queen’s Bench granting the Union’s request for an interim injunction. The interim injunction blocks Suncor’s random drug testing policy at the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo site. The injunction will apply until the underlying arbitration is decided; a final decision will be made either by way of appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada, or by a fresh arbitration panel. We will continue to provide updates on this litigation which may provide some much needed clarity on the legality of random drug testing in Canada.
