Market Basket Employee Files Labor Complaint against Market Basket for Threatening to Fire Workers
Aug 26 14
A Market Basket employee has filed a labor complaint against the company, Market Basket for threatening to fire workers who have protested to bring ousted CEO Arthur T. Demoulas back. Karen Bostwick, a Lowell resident, alleges that Market Basket has violated workers' rights laws to picket and strike, and has created a hostile work environment with a lack of safety. The office worker called it ironic that office workers and warehouse workers have been jeered by protesters, while full-time store workers who remain on the job haven't received the same treatment. The boycott has lasted more than five weeks, draining the chain's 71 stores of about 90% of revenue. Part-time store workers have been almost entirely out of work in recent weeks.
Demoulas Super Markets to Put Thousands of Part-Timers Out of Work
Aug 7 14
Demoulas Super Markets is putting thousands of part-timers out of work by early next week as the company's management reacts to a sharp slowdown in traffic at its 71 Market Basket stores. Demoulas calculates hours for part-timers based on how much revenue is being produced at each store, and that figure has dropped precipitously amid the chaos. In many cases, shoppers are boycotting the stores at the workers' requests, to show solidarity. It was unclear how many employees would be affected by these cuts, although the chain's total employment was most recently estimated at 25,000, and more than half of the workers are part-timers.
