First day of TTC random tests turn up drug, alcohol cases

The first day of random drug and alcohol testing at the TTC yielded two employees one who were under the influence — one of drugs and the other of alcohol. They have been suuspended with pay.  The TTC’s Brad Ross told NewsTalk 1010 that the positive tests occurred on Monday. Ross said that the employee using alcohol is not a driver but is one of 10,000 workers with a “safety sensitive” position. The list of employees deemed to have safety sensitive positions, includes maintenance workers, supervisors and executives. He called the results disappointing.
