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

Both parents are Local 689 members. Can both parents cover the child on different plans?

No. The parents need to decide which one of them will cover the child. In cases involving a Qualified Medical Child Support Order (QMCSO), the county Child Services Agency may need to be informed. See the Enrolling for Coverage page for more information.
