Drug and Alcohol Random Testing Procedures and Compensation
August 1, 2020
EAP/ Professional Standards Committee
On April 12, 2019 your AFA Employee Assistance Program / Professional Standards Committee published detailed information concerning the Department of Transportation (DOT) federally mandated Random Drug and Alcohol Testing Procedures that allows for unannounced and random testing for all Flight Attendants. In addition to DOT Drug and Alcohol Testing Flight Attendants can also be subject to companydrug testing. Understand that this means Flight Attendants can be subject to both drug and alcohol testing depending on the type of test being administered.
We strongly encourage all Flight Attendants to become familiar with the publication and to visit the EAP/ Professional Standards pageon unitedafa.org or the FADAP.org website for additional information including several documents containing information on DOT Drug and Alcohol testing.
Also, Section 4.F. of our Contract outlines the contractual provision for Drug and Alcohol Testing compensation. Compensation for testing will be paid based on a Julian calendar month verses the bid month.
Note: Although there is no limitation as to the number of times Flight Attendants can be tested there is also no limitation on the number of times our contractual provision in Section 4.F., Drug and Alcohol Testing Pay will be paid.
