TTC Employees to Undergo Random Drug Testing

drug testing

Toronto Transit Commission workers will undergo random drug and alcohol testing starting March 1, 2017. The $1.3-million program was recently approved by the commission at its board meeting on Nov. 30.

The commission says more than 10,000 TTC employees will be subject to testing, including all operators and maintenance employees, designated supervisors, managers and executives or anyone whose job has accountability or responsibility for the safety of employees and the public.
