Transit union fighting Metrolinx cannabis ban

The new Metrolinx policy banning recreational cannabis for certain workers has drawn criticism and could bring legal action from the Amalgamated Transit Union, Local 1587, which represents Metrolinx employees.

Union president John Di Nino has said that the policy change was done without consultation with the union by the company and that members have been calling him with concerns that it infringes on their rights. He has said they are considering every legal option to protect their workers. (The Observer was unable to contact the ATU directly.)
