Program participants will be tested initially at the first time of entry to a CUDAP company. Following that initial test, every program participant is subject to lottery testing at any time at any CUDAP work location. Because testing is done by lottery selection, each program participant may be tested multiple times per year or may not be tested at all.
Individuals will be selected using a two step process:
You will be referred to a substance abuse professional. Following treatment and return to work testing, you may return to work at a CUDAP location. If you test positive a second time, you will be barred from working at CUDAP locations.
CUDAP member employers will be able to check your status in the program. Your status will be either "available" or "not available." "Available" means you are in the program and you have either no positives or you tested positive and you have been cleared to return to work. "Not available" means you have had two positive tests or you have had a positive test and you have not gone through the rehabilitation process to return to work.
You will not be permitted access to the CUDAP employer's jobsite.
The CUDAP program is a joint program of BUILT-RITE, local employers and the Philadelphia Building and Construction Trades Council and its member unions.
Individuals testing positive will be interviewed by a physician who is certified as a Medical Review Officer (MRO). The MRO will review all relevant medical information you provide prior to making a final determination.
You will be refused subsequent work at a CUDAP worksite.
