Court Nixes Change in NYC Drug-Testing Method

     MANHATTAN (CN) – New York City should not have unilaterally changed its method of drug-testing city police officers from urinalysis to hair analysis, the New York Appellate Division ruled.

     The appellate court reversed the lower court’s decision to annul the Board of Collective Bargaining conclusion that the city should not have changed its testing method.
      “Routine drug screening procedures are a mandatory subject of collective bargaining,” Justice Tom wrote. “No persuasive policy reason has been advanced to require the New York City Office of Collective Bargaining to depart from its prior decisions.”
