Market Basket Pays $400,000 In OSHA Fines

On October 24, 2011 we reported on OSHA citations against DeMoulas Supermarkets' Market Basket stores with a total of $589,000 in fines. (See blog post here.)

The New Hampshire Union Leader reports that Market Basket has reached an agreement with OSHA in which they will pay $400,000 in fines and agreeing to make major changes related to safety.  The story states:

"Attorney James F. Laboe, of Orr and Reno in Concord and representing Market Basket, said in a statement, 'While Market Basket disagreed with many of the conclusions reached by OSHA when issuing the citations in this case, the company and OSHA both agreed that resolution was in the best interests for all involved.'"

Read the complete Union Leader article here.  The article includes a list of the changes Market Basket has agreed to make.

It does not look like they got a good deal here. OSHA seems to reduce contested fines much more than this. Maybe OSHA is finally getting some backbone to stand up to these big companies that exploit their employees.
