I hear the unions are not too happy with events at market basket. Can't have the people go against management without the unions!
I would say the unions are behind Arthur S.
The employees keep telling the unions to stay away, they obviously don't need them. The Arthur S team must have a financial death wish as they watch their investment value decrease everyday.
If this keeps up more then a month it will cause long term harm to the company and it may never recover
MMJ, before ( and at) the very first rally, there were union members there offering to provide legal help, no strings attached to anyone who was fired, etc. I thought this was a nice gesture, though cynically..the SEIU and the teamsters have nothing to lose by building up some goodwill.
I think unions in general are looking at this situation with a sense of admiration for the workers, managers and customers. It is rare to see the three so united and on the same page. This is practically unprecedented.
Honestly, it has already gone on longer than I expected. I think if it goes another week, the company is done. I am already starting to get comfortable at my local Shaw's and Stop & Shop for the few things I actually buy at a grocery store.. My husband and I were talking about it the other day and we agreed we may even like them better.
Sad to see the end of MB as we know it....and I feel bad for the local suppliers who are really hurting
I think the unions see this as a threat, clearly.
Do you think the unions have told the senator of the people, Warren to stay out of it?
isn't this movement the kind of grassroots takin-it-to-the-man stuff Warren claims she supports?
i'm thinkin that our senator is more than a fake Indian.
and the senator from Sealtest? He's kinda quiet too, don't you think? Based on the redacted address he put on his state tax returns, I'm guessing Market Basket is a bit of a drive for him.
