Wonder how soon the claim window at WCB Alberta will be over run, due to co-workers on the job being stoned or drunk & causing injuries to happen.

At one time major work sites would have a sign saying how many days since the last accident.
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

Well the problem i see is not unions trying to protect addicts of booze or hard drugs .It is the companies trying to write one size fits all when it is not the case .

I saw highland valley hire people who took pain killers but did not hire someone who had marijuana in system . Where is the logic there ? I think unions would bemore open to zero tolerance with realistic guidlines that reflect real life .

No one wants to work with anyone visably intoxicated but the other hand is people being disqualified for something that may not be impairing judgement as some marijuana,preperations do not get anyone high but would not pass,a,test
