IMF employees on their way into work Thursday morning were warned that asbestos work is being done by workers with faked asbestos licenses. Members of LIUNA Mid-Atlantic, wearing Tyvek suits and gas masks, passed out informational fliers about the fraudulent licenses at the IMF building on 19th Street, which houses approximately 2,300 staff and a day care center which has remained open during the asbestos abatement project. The District of Columbia recently found that staffing company Green Jobs Works has employed six “unlicensed personnel” on the ongoing asbestos abatement project. Asbestos is a known human carcinogen and can cause chronic lung disease as well as lung and other cancers. @maliuna photo
