The built project was funded by the California’s Tobacco Tax Fund (Proposition 99) from 1999-2007, and in that time, developed numerous resources about cessation and prevention of tobacco use by construction and blue collar workers.  Many of these materials are still available in hard copy through the Tobacco Education Clearinghouse of California (TECC):  (search for “union”).

We are pleased to have received funding from Pfizer to update the website and select materials.  Please contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions.


Each year, the third Thursday of November has been designated as the Great American Smokeout. It’s a great day to stop smoking with thousands of others around the country.

 Construction workers care about their health. Over 70% of those who smoke would like to quit. Every year the American Cancer Society promotes the Great American Smokeout as a day for all smokers to quit, at least for that day.
