 Appeal of Amalgamated Transit Union, Local 717
The PELRB found the union committed an ULP because the arbitrator's award was contrary to public policy, vacated the arbitrator's award, and dismissed the union's ULP claim.
According to the Union, the positive result of [the employee's] random drug test "merely" indicates the presence of cocaine in his bloodstream; it does not necessarily signify that [the employee] was under the influence.
Implementation of the arbitrator's award would allow public transit employees testing positive for drugs to remain in their safety-sensitive positions until the employee was actually impaired on the job, foreseeably evidenced by an accident resulting in a catastrophic loss of life.
