Are ATC Controllers Subject To Drug Testing?

Sat May 26, 2001 4:52 pm

How often?

In this super-high-stress job, I know that drinking must be a continual problem within the ATC towers. (Who could blame them!)

Whatever you controllers are getting paid ...... it's NOT ENOUGH!!

Who agrees?  Big thumbs up

drug testing is random


why does everyone have the incessant belief that all ATC'ers are alcoholics?

Ben2................

I certainly said no such thing about ALL ATC'ers being alcoholics!

But I imagine SOME have drinking problems.

And I really can't blame them. Something's got to ease the stress of that unbelievably hateful and agonizing rush hour day after day!!

Most of them don't work 5-day weeks though do they? Shorter weeks prevail, don't they?

People have drinking problems no matter what profession you are dealing with. Generally, they work for 5 days straight and get 2 days off. Depending on what shift they start and end their work week with, that 2 days off can be considerably longer than 48 hours.
