Today’s Board meeting has come and gone and the only thing we know for certain is that Arthur T. Demoulas is still our President and CEO.
Think about that for a second. The Board wants to fire him, and has wanted to fire him since last June. Arthur S wants to fire him. Fotene, Diana and Rafaela want to fire him.
The only reason that they have not is YOU.
Let the enormity of that sink in.
This is a multi-billion dollar company and you have prevented the people at the top from making an epically stupid move. You have stood up and flexed your muscle and these people have taken heed that you must be reckoned with. In the midst of all this uncertainty it is a wonderful, empowering feeling, isn’t it? Things like this don’t happen in today’s corporate world and hopefully that world will take notice of what is happening here, for this is a story that needs to be told.
Go to bed tonight knowing that you saved Arthur’s job again today. You have allowed him to fight for us another day. You have much to be proud of and should know that it is appreciated by thousands of others.
There is still much work to do but WE can accomplish anything! The “A” shareholders an their puppet BOD think of you as a number and they think of the bottom line only, they could care less about you and the other stakeholders of Market Basket. Let us all think of a way to get their attention, we have made a difference but our work is far from done. Keep that edge and remain vigilant. ATD needs you and our company needs you.
We, Together, Are Market Basket
As we hear more news from the meeting we will inform you as always, the good, the bad and the ugly. We won’t sugar coat it and we won’t lie or misinform you.
