Oilsands giant Suncor Energy says it plans to start randomly testing some of its employees for drugs at its northern Alberta worksites in the new year.

The testing policy had been challenged in court for years by Unifor, the union that represents company workers.

Suncor now says it has come to an agreement with the union and testing will begin sometime during the first three months of 2019.

Unifor represents about 3,000 workers on Suncor sites.
