November is Smoking Cessation Month

Tobacco smoke still accounts for the #1 most preventable death in the US – accounting for 1 in every 5 deaths. Throughout the month of November, 689 Moving Metro will be providing resources to assist our members who want to become quitters! While out at the divisions, engage with us to receive:

  • Smoking Cessation tips sheet
  • Tobacco savings calculator 

Additionally, all states have quit-lines with counselors specifically trained to help smokers quit. If you need support, call the number below to be connected directly to a counselor in your area: 1-800-Quit-Now.

Our team is also looking for members who have successfully quit smoking for longer than one year to highlight for this month! If you have recently quit and would like to use your story to inspire others, please contact us at wellness@tehw.org to express your interest!

FAQs

I want to work part-time. What happens to my medical coverage?

If you transfer from a full-time to a part-time position, you will have to pay more out-of-pocket to continue your medical coverage. Medical, vision and dental coverage are not mandatory for part-time employees. You have the option to discontinue your coverage if you become a part-time employee. You will return to the Plan as soon as The Health and Welfare office is notified of your return to full-time status.

Part-time employees can choose to pay monthly for coverage through the Health & Welfare Plan. All part-time employees (except for New Service Agreement employees and re-hired retired employees) receive long-term disability and life insurance coverage. For more information, visit the Enrollment page.
