As of January 1, 2011, the IBEW Local 701 contract language requires all Local 701 members to be subject to random drug testing and all active signatory contractors must participate in the IBEW Local 701 Drug Testing Program.
The IBEW Local 701 Drug Testing Program is managed in-house by Lauren Mesich in the LMCC/PowerForward DuPage office and a copy of the current policy is available in our office as well as the “Members Only” section of this website.
If you have any questions or need additional information regarding this program, please contact Lauren Mesich at (630) 393-1701 Extension 5.
