Local 6 Heat & Frost Insulators Union Partners with Wellness Workdays to Promote Member Wellbeing
Updated: May 22
Wellness Workdays, a leading provider of workplace wellness programs, announces a new partnership with Heat & Frost Insulators and Allied Workers Local 6 Union. With this relationship, wellness services will be accessible to all 500 members and apprentices of Insulators Local 6 Boston as part of a commitment to make member health a priority.
This partnership will deliver a customized and flexible approach to wellbeing by combining health coaching, education, mental health, and resiliency tools, and more to the union members and apprentices. The partnership comes at a time when the demand for wellness services is growing in the construction industry and more organizations are seeking proactive solutions to employee wellbeing and rising healthcare costs.
“Navigating life on life’s terms can be tough. Physical labor can be even tougher.” Says Jeff Saliba, Business Manager of Heat & Frost Insulators Local 6. “Without the personal knowledge to make better decisions about one’s healthcare, the construction workers’ wellbeing becomes especially prone to the pressures of life. This, compounded by the exorbitant price of healthcare, makes us excited for a partnership with Wellness Workdays. We believe Wellness Workdays’ proven record of success both locally and nationally, can help us accomplish our goals.”
The dedicated Wellness Workdays Health & Wellness Coach will travel to all project sites around New England and meet with any member or apprentice who chooses to participate. One-on-one health coaching will be available (both on-site and virtual) to provide support and guidance around positive lifestyle changes and personal goals. On-site health screenings will take place for members to learn and track blood pressure, cholesterol, blood glucose, and weight. Members will also have access to personalized resources and assistance in all areas of wellness.
