The following statement reflects the latest regarding ROC United’s organizational structure.
ROC-NY and ROC United have been working as separate organizations with a shared mission to improve restaurant workers’ wages and working conditions. After a joint evaluation process, we have agreed that ROC-NY and ROC United will be operated as a single unified national organization.
Co-founded by leading workers’ rights advocate Saru Jayaraman (“One of the top 50 most influential people in the restaurant industry” – Nation’s Restaurant News) ROC United has grown to over 13,000 worker-members across 26 cities in the US, winning 15 worker-led campaigns, totaling $8 million in stolen tips and wages.
