The company has announced it plans to hold job fairs for current employees on Monday and Tuesday from 4 to 8 p.m. at Market Basket’s IT Computer Center in Andover, Mass.
This news comes one day after Market Basket officials issued a statement saying employees who have stayed off the job to demand the return of Arthur T. Demoulas must return to work by Monday. It added workers can return without penalty; those who don’t return will be replaced.
Milford assistant manager Mark Sturzo, a 36-year employee, attended a company rally in Tewksbury earlier in the day and said, “We had a very positive rally and will hold down the fort and stay focused on the task at hand to bring back Artie T.
“We only had one delivery in two weeks. We have not had a lot of customers either, but we have enough employees to man the store,” Milford store manager Roger Breakey said.
“This is the only time I’ve seen managers and workers on strike together. It’s totally unusual,” said boycotting customer John Curran of Peterborough.
