Labor Unions Contacted about Smoking Ban

The St. Louis Smokefree Air Act due to be proposed by 28th ward Alderman Lyda Krewson on May 1st bans all smoking within 15 feet of any building or worksite. It also bans smoking in all work vehicles. Employers and contractors can be fined as much as $500 for each violation!

OSHA has already ruled that such strict smoking bans are not necessary to protect worker health. Please contact Mayor Slay, Board of Alderman President Lewis Reed and the St. Louis Board of Alderman. Tell them to vote no on this unnecessary and excessive ordinance.

Mayor Slay: (314) 534-2009
President Lewis Reed: (314) 622-4114
St. Louis Board of Alderman: (314) 622-3287
