TEWKSBURY -- Market Basket management has issued a final warning to return to work to about 200 workers the company says have failed to report to work since July 17.
Executives that have taken over after Arthur T. Demoulas was fired as CEO in June have issued a few pleas before for employees to get back on the job. They have not yet taken any action against those who've remained out of work but said Tuesday they are "left with no choice but to make this last request."
The company held three days of job fairs last week, at which hundreds of employees and former employees picketed to protest what they say as threats against their jobs.
The letter gives workers until Friday to get back to work.
"We are writing one final time, to invite you to return to work and perform your job obligations," said the letter, the contents of which were confirmed by the company. "If your role requires that you primarily work at the company's headquarters or distribution facilities, you must return to such role ready to fulfill your duties by no later than Friday, August 15, 2014."
