The Engineers Union says the Employment Relations Authority has found against Carter Holt Harvey's Nelson sawmill after it required 76 union members at the mill to give a urine sample for drug testing, following the discovery of two cannabis plants in the grounds outside the plant.

The ERA found the company had breached the workers' rights and has ordered the union and CHH to attend mediation to agree on the amount of compensation to pay to each employee.
