DRUG/ALCOHOL TESTING. PREAMBLE While abuse of alcohol and drugs among our members is the exception rather than the rule, the Teamsters Local 117 Police Sergeants Negotiating Committee shares the concern expressed by many over the growth of substance abuse in American society. The drug/alcohol testing procedure, agreed to by labor/management, incorporates state-of- the-art employee protections during specimen collection and laboratory testing to protect the innocent. In order to eliminate the safety risks which result from alcohol or drugs, the Parties have agreed to the following procedures. As referred to herein, testing shall be applicable to all entry level probationary employees and any other employee for whom the Port has a reasonable suspicion that the employee is working while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
DRUG/ALCOHOL TESTING. Drug/alcohol testing shall be conducted solely for administrative purposes and the results obtained shall not be used in criminal proceedings. Under no circumstances may the results of drug/alcohol screening or testing be released to a third party for use in a criminal prosecution against the affected employee. The City conducts the following types of drug/alcohol testing to determine if employees are in compliance with this policy and associated rules of conduct: pre-employment, reasonable suspicion, and post-accident. In addition, employees are tested prior to returning to duty after a positive drug or alcohol test and subject to follow-up testing conducted during the course of a rehabilitation program recommended by a substance abuse professional. A Medical Review Officer (MRO) reviews test results and determines which tests are positive and which are negative. The City shall test for the following drugs: marijuana, amphetamines, opiates, phencyclidine (PCP), cocaine, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, methadone, methaqualone, and propoxyphene. An initial drug screen is conducted on each specimen. For those specimens that are not negative, a confirmatory gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) test is performed. The test is considered positive if the amounts present are above the minimum thresholds established in 49 CFR Part 40. An alcohol concentration of .04 percent or greater is considered a positive alcohol test, and in violation of this policy. If a drug or alcohol test produces a positive result, the City may take such actions as authorized in Section 14.6 herein. Sick leave and/or other paid leave may be used while participating in a rehabilitation program. Otherwise, the employee will be placed on leave without pay until return to work following a negative alcohol/ drug test and authorization by the SAP.

The Contractor shall pay the costs associated with such testing.
