RMT Concerned With LUL Use Of Hair Sampling

We note with concern the company’s use of this means of testing for drugs and alcohol and the potential ramifications for our members of any such process to which we are opposed.

The General Secretary is instructed to seek a legal opinion of the company’s use of bodily hair samples for drug and alcohol testing. The opinion to be placed back before this General Grades Committee for further consideration.

The General Secretary is further instructed to write to LUL to demand that all hair samples taken by the company in this process and all data relating to those samples is destroyed and that this information is communicated to all those who have supplied samples. Branches and Regional Councils to be informed.
