New Health & Wellness Resources

Local 6 is pleased to announce the development of a new Health Coaching Wellness program for all members. This program is part of our Local’s ongoing commitment to making the health of our members our top priority.

This wellness program ( is being conducted in partnership with Wellness Workdays, and includes access to a full-time health coach, who will be visiting our project sites to offer the following services:

  • One-on-one health coaching sessions (virtual and on-site)
  • On-site health screenings where members can learn and track your blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, and weight
  • Guidance and support through lifestyle changes and personal goals
  • Assistance and resources in all areas of wellness, including nutrition, stress management, exercise therapy, injury prevention, smoking cessation, sleep hygiene, and more.

Please note that our new health coach is an employee of our wellness partner – Wellness Workdays – and will keep members personal information confidential. This program is completely voluntary, but we hope that members will find activities that inspire you to participate.

Additional information on this exciting initiative will soon be available. If you’d like to sign up to hear from our health coach when appointments are available, use the following link:
