They probably did. That said, I don't blame the guy for wanting equipment tested/certified for his situation. I know I'd want it.
That said, I've worked in situations where you need gloves and PPE to protect oneself from BBP. I've never been in a union and yet somehow I was still provided the correct personal protective equipment.
