The Market Basket Family Feud Continues
The Market Basket saga continues as employees of the supermarket chain held another rally Tuesday. But a major question looms about what’s going through the minds of the people who ousted him, the Market Basket board of directors.
- “At this very well-regarded family company, employees are picketing to protest the board’s firing of CEO Arthur T. Demoulas. Shelves are largely bare, and suppliers are being hurt by the slowdown. Many shoppers are not crossing the picket lines. The company’s newly appointed co-CEOs are trying to replace striking employees; some 25,000 jobs are at stake.”
- “Hundreds of warehouse workers and drivers who support Demoulas have refused to deliver food to the chain’s 71 stores, leaving store shelves severely depleted and prompting customers to defect to other supermarkets.”
