CDC / NIOSH Respirator Buyer Alert

NIOSH has become aware of a counterfeit N95 Respirator on the market.

 While the TC number and private label holder (KOSTO) are valid, this unapproved unit can be identified by the misspelling of NIOSH on the front of the respirator.

 How can you be sure your respirator is truly NIOSH-approved?

Check the respirator approval markings or Certified Equipment List .

Additional information is available on the NIOSH Trusted Source Page or by calling 1-800-35-NIOSH.

IAM Honors MLK’s Legacy

Today, we celebrate and honor the moral leadership and achievements of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a courageous leader who championed civil rights, freedom and dignity for all.

Dr. King strongly believed that a powerful and vibrant labor movement was essential to achieve the civil rights and economic and social justice he gave his life fighting for. It was not just the content of Dr. King’s words, but also the emotion of his speeches that continue to inspire us today to continue the struggle to achieve his dream.
