"Market Basket workers have secured the return of their preferred corporate leader by standing together in unprecedented collective actions. These workers showed that the real value of any company is not held in stocks, but in the dedication and hard work of its workforce,” according to a joint statement from UFCW international president Joe Hansen; International VP Richard Charette; and Dave Fleming, president of UFCW Local 328.

Market Basket workers were not represented by a union, but the statement said, “The members of our union have stood in solidarity with Market Basket workers, from rallies to raising a solidarity fund to help laid-off workers. As Market Basket workers negotiate the terms of their return to work, we will continue to offer our solidarity and our support.”
