At least 7 Market Basket employees fired, protesters say

At least seven Market Basket employees were fired today, including organizers of a protest that has targeted the grocery chain in recent days by workers pressing for the return of ousted president Arthur T. Demoulas.

Six of those fired received a letter that arrived by courier, according to the employees or their colleagues. In some cases, a delivery person waited curbside for workers to return home from weekend activities to deliver their packages with termination letters inside, as well as no trespassing orders and advice on how to apply for unemployment.
