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:
