MOST announces drug policy change

Annual testing will resume August 31, 2015

THE MOST DRUG policy for construction Boilermakers will once again include annual testing, effective August 31, 2015.

MOST Administrator Roger Erickson issued a memorandum to all construction lodges March 20 announcing the change. Under the revised policy, any construction member who is eligible for referral through the MOST Boilermaker Delivery System (MBDS) must comply with the policy by the August 31, 2015 deadline or face being placed on the ineligible list until the test can be completed with a negative test result.

Erickson announced that MOST will send renewal cards to all members who have not been tested from February 1, 2013, to the present. Members who have questions about the drug policy or who wish to apply for the annual drug test and establish a chain of custody may contact the MOST office directly at 1-800-395-1089.

A PDF copy of the revised drug policy is available on the MOST Programs website.
