DISPUTE LODGED IN SAET: DRUG AND ALCOHOL POLICY UPDATE

08 November 2017

The PSA maintains that a genuine Drug and Alcohol program can be put in place without the need for the invasive requirement to disclose prescription medication use and without the draconian “zero tolerance” position on alcohol.

The PSA has also asked the Department on several occasions to give examples which demonstrate a genuine issue within DPTI that creates a need for such extreme policy, or why existing policies are now unsuitable.

The PSA will continue to fight for members to ensure that genuine concerns are adequately addressed by the Department, and that the necessary changes are made.

The PSA will continue to keep members updated.
