To Be Clear,
For the few who may be confused, our message remains clear: we will go back to work when Arthur T Demoulas goes back to work with full authority or when the deal is in place to sell him the company. We will not go back to work when the Governor, the Board or any other entity tells us to.
The one thing that Governor Patrick doesn’t seem to understand is that the 2 million customers are boycotting our stores because THEY want Arthur T Demoulas back as the CEO with full authority. Associates going back without ATD will not stabilize the company. In fact, on this very page many customers are telling us that regardless of what associates do they will not come back to shop until ATD is back.
