Despite a call to return to work by the new heads of Market Basket, employees reported Monday morning being locked out of an Andover warehouse.
Posting to Facebook, Stephen Baker, a fork lift operator, said “no market basket employees are allowed in the building.”
The company issued a statement Friday, urging employees to return to work and promising no retaliation.
“The past month has been trying. We appreciate the strain this change of leadership has placed on our associates. We welcome back associates who are committed to Market Basket’s customers. There will be no penalty or discipline for any associate who joins in what will be a significant effort to return to the unparalleled level of performance and customer service that have been hallmarks of the Market Basket brand. There will be no change to Market Basket’s unmatched compensation and benefits.”
