160 Signatures Goal: 250

UPDATE: The Coalition for a Smoke-Free Chicago is really stepping up the campaign to help make Chicago smoke free. As you my have heard, last week the City Council\'s Health Committee unanimously passed the proposal to ban smoking in all indoor areas and it is up for a full council vote at the end of November. But the fight is not over. The Illinois Restaurant Association (who claims to be working in our interest) handed in a last-minute ordinance which they have asked the City Council to review. The ordinance allows for too many exemptions and will create such an uneven playing field for establishments it will create the problem they claim to be trying to avoid which is loss of business and our jobs. We need to tell the Aldermen of Chicago that we - as restaurant, bar, hotel and food service employees - want a 100% comprehensive smoking ban in Chicago. This is the only we can guarantee our health and jobs. This petition is intended for restaurant, bar, and hotel employees in Chicago who support the proposed ban on smoking in our work places. Your signature on this petition is not only a show of support for the proposed ban but a voice against the Illinois Restaurant Association and the Heartland Institute, the major opponents of the ban. They say they represent us, they say we want to work in smoke filled rooms, they say we
