****** Medical Marijuana becomes Legal in Ohio on 9/6/2016 ******

But NOT in our workplace

Ohio has legalized the use of medical marijuana.  This becomes effective on September 6, 2016.  Medical marijuana will still remain an illegal substance in our workforce and anyone will be considered non-current if they test positive for use, regardless if a valid prescription is provided.  

This bill is very friendly to employers. The new law specifically allows for employers to maintain a drug-free workplace or zero-tolerance drug policy.  The bill also maintains an employer's right to terminate an employee who tests positive for marijuana.  Unemployment benefits are not required to be paid if a positive drug test is the reason for termination.

If you test through MOST while you are on the Book, you can turn in your receipt to the Referral office, immediatley after testing, for your $50 stipend. The stipend will be mailed to you and will take about two weeks

To check your MOST drug test date, you
can call the MOST automated system.

  If you believe that your drug testing
date is due to expire and you are currently working, be sure to check with your
employer and ask
them for a
drug screen packet.

If you currently are not working, see
Brenda in the Business Office
to pick up a renewal packet.


Remember, you must be current with the
MOST Substance Abuse Program
before you arrive on the job.

The MOST Substance Abuse Program IS reciprocal with the
MUST Safety Drug Program.

If you take a call with a Local that
contracts with MUST, you can have
your MOST profile sent to MUST.

Contact MOST at 1-877-522-6869
and ask them to forward your profile
onto MUST.

The union hall or your contractor will
have to register you with MUST.

If you are working for a contractor that uses
the MUST program and you have tested
with the MUST program, you can have
your profile updated in MOST.

Visit their website www.mustbsafe.com .
Enter your username (social security number, no spaces). Enter your password (first 4 digits of your social security number). Click on employee report card, print it and fax it to MOST at 913-281-3922.

Keep in mind that every Local has their own policy and procedures regarding drug programs.

So if you plan on traveling, you may
want to talk to the referral office of
each Local you visit to see what their
policy is regarding their
drug program.

Call Brenda at Local 8 if you have
any questions at 419-666-8920.
