It can be correct with or without the article. 


The uniformed workers - means specific workers.  The uniformed workers were given a pass.  The workers not in uniforms had to complete some paperwork before getting a pass.


Uniformed workers - means any workers, not specific ones.  Uniformed workers are easier to identify when they ring your doorbell.
