Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

Exposing UFCW Hijinks in Arizona

In case you missed it: Over the weekend, the Center for Union Facts landed an opinion piece in The Arizona Republic, the Grand Canyon State’s largest newspaper. As with our last foray into Arizona opinion journalism, this article concerns the United Food and Commercial Workers union’s questionable attempts to unionize Bashas’ supermarkets:

Bashas’ has accused the UFCW of planting outdated baby formula in the company’s stores, a claim that echoes the union’s conduct in a similar pressure campaign against the non-union Food Lion supermarket chain. The UFCW’s “story” of food mishandling and unfair labor practices at the chain was fed to ABC News for a 1992 story, which cost ABC a major lawsuit after a judge found no evidence of wrongdoing by the company.
