Wellness programs may have little support from many unions, but at Daimler Chrysler, they have big champions in the Canadian Autoworkers (CAW).

They also have long-term commitment from the Windsor, Ont.-headquartered auto manufacturer, in the form of $1 million over three years, as set out in the collective agreement. There are 60,000 beneficiaries of the programs, including Daimler Chrysler employees, their dependants and retirees.

Lyle Hargrove, director of the CAW health and safety training fund, has long been a believer in health promotion initiatives.
