Basha's "Family Values" To Be Aired Before House Committee

Mr. A. C. Span, among several warehouse workers outsourced by Bashas' Inc. after they began forming a union to address concerns about workplace safety, will deliver testimony to the US House Education and Labor Committee this Thursday, June 19, at 7:30 a.m., Arizona time.

The House committee will hear A. C. describe the ways that Bashas' warehouse management discourages reporting of workplace injuries and illnesses and attempts to suppress organizing for worker safety.

Watch the webcast on the House Education and Labor Committee website:

Basha's is well known for claiming that it treats its workers are like family. Scary thought for those whom it just treats like workers, isn't it?

Think about the workers when you're making your next grocery list.
