Summary In the summer of 2014, the international news media focused on a workers' dispute at Market Basket, a New England grocery chain. For two months, 25,000 workers at the company's 71 stores and three warehouses had walked off their jobs, and customers helped them with a store-wide boycott. What captured international attention more than anything else was that this was the oddest 'strike' ever; the workers, who were non-union, had left their jobs with only a single non-negotiable demand in mind - to have their boss, Arthur T. Demoulas, reinstated after he was fired as the company CEO by his cousin Arthur S. Demoulas
