Three Market Basket board of directors attempted to end the dispute that has resulted in the supermarket chain losing millions of dollars as thousands of workers protest the removal of former CEO Arthur T. Demoulas, according to WMTW.

The Portland television news station reported Sunday the directors said Saturday that 25,000 workers and two million customers "shouldn't be held hostage for a business deal between shareholders." Their statement came a day after Demoulas rejected an offer to let him and his former management team help restore normal operations, but not take control.
