Fired Market Basket managers demand wages

Posted: Updated:
TEWKSBURY, Mass. (WHDH) - Eight managers who were fired two weeks ago from Market Basket said that they didn't receive some of their pay that was due according to law.

The managers fired off a demand letter telling the new CEOs that they will do whatever is necessary to receive wages due.

"It came to our attention with the release from the Attorney General of Massachusetts and New Hampshire...everybody should be entitled to their wages," said one former manager. "They got a response that said this would take place, but from what I understand, a lot of people have not received their weekly paycheck."

The Attorneys General in both New Hampshire and Massachusetts have sent the Market Basket CEOs a warning saying if anyone is fired they better get the wages they are owed.

"Even though they may have the right to terminate employees we want to make sure the company knows that for payment, wages, for benefits may have accrued over a time period, those are due on the day of termination," said Attorney General Martha Coakley.

Hundreds gathered outside the company headquarters in Tewksbury on Friday, continuing to picket the firing of CEO Arthur T. Demoulas and calling for his reinstatement.

Another large rally for workers and customers is being planned for Monday.
