Subject: Smoking in the office building
The Staff Liaison Committee would like to draw your attention to the issue of smoking in
the office building.
A number of staff have reported persistent respiratory illnesses while others believe that
cigarette smoke in the company's offices is unpleasant. Recently the Staff Committee
discussed this issue and voted by a majority of 19 to 18 to propose banning cigarette
smoking in the company's offices.
The staff in favour of banning smoking believe that the overall comfort and health of
staff would improve if this change were to happen. This could reduce illness and staff
absenteeism and ultimately increase productivity.
The Staff Liaison Committee would like you to consider this issue and the possibility of
banning smoking in the company's offices.
