Brothers and Sisters,
Local S6 Leadership is currently in discussions with the Company regarding the creation of designated tobacco smoking areas. These discussions stem from several housekeeping issues and increased fires due to the current no-smoking policy.
We are looking for feedback from the membership on whether or not they would be interested in enrolling in a new policy if one is negotiated.
- The designated tobacco smoking areas would be for all facilities and shifts.
- All members would be allowed to smoke tobacco in designated areas before the shift, at the break, at lunch, and after shift.
- All members working on the 2nd or 3rd shift would have additional time to smoke tobacco added to the contractual 20-minute paid lunch.
- All members would be expected to only use the designated tobacco smoking areas at the designated times.
If interested, please visit the link below and fill out the survey. Additionally, please feel free to leave comments on our Facebook page post.
*Polling has closed; 1/26/22. Thank you for the feedback*
