Wellness Programs and Initiatives
The UFT, in its role as a leader of the Municipal Labor Committee unions and the city's health committee, worked with the mayor's Office of Labor Relations and the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to launch WorkWell NYC, an initiative designed to support New York City employees in getting and staying healthy.
The programs include:
Flu vaccinations are now offered at worksites across city agencies during the flu season.
NYC employees and retirees, along with employees' spouses and dependents, can receive discounted pricing at Weight Watchers.
UFT members and staff can receive confidential assistance on how to quit smoking.
