At Market Basket protest, truck driver gets arrested
Tewksbury police quickly moved in and knocked the driver down after he stopped the truck he was to driving into the warehouse parking lot, jumped from the cab and started moving toward the picket line.
“He came out of the cab with a hammer down by his side, there was a rag wrapped around it,” said John Dixon, a deli manager for a Market Basket in Nashua, in an interview Fox News Boston.
“He was very aggressive,” said Dixon. “He was specifically going after two of our guys.”
“We are thankful that local police intervened and that no one was injured. Market Basket of course condemns the driver’s actions. Both the driver and the company for which he worked have been terminated, effective immediately.”
Several protestors, including former Operations
A crowd of several hundred workers were picketing Market Basket headquarters Friday, the final day for central office staff and other employees to return to their jobs or risk being replaced.
Warehouse workers and delivery drivers continue to say they will not return to work until ousted CEO Arthur T. Demoulas is back in his office. Demoulas was fired last month by rival family members who own a controlling interest in the supermarket chain.
