Market Basket workers plan protest despite threat by company

The battle over the Market Basket grocery empire is headed for another big showdown Friday with employees planning a rally outside company headquarters in support of recently ousted president, Arthur T. Demoulas, while the new bosses are threatening to fire any workers who walk out on the job.

On Thursday, protesting workers had issued a 4:30 p.m. deadline for Market Basket executives to respond to their demands that Demoulas be reinstated. Instead, the newly appointed co-chief executives, Felicia Thornton and James F. Gooch, sent a note to the chain’s employees warning them not to skip work in support of Demoulas.
