NY Restaurant Workers Demand Fair Work Conditions at Del Posto

As part of our workplace justice campaigns, ROC-NY has been assisting a group of more than 40 workers in challenging illegal and unjust workplace practices at Del Posto restaurant, a four-star restaurant owned by celebrity chef Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich. For years, these workers were confronted with tip misappropriation and discrimination. Since this time, the workers have organized public actions outside of the restaurant, filed a federal lawsuit and EEOC charges, and organized consumers to support their campaign. The campaign has garnered considerable media attention (see Grub Street) . As a consequence, the workers have won several favorable changes in their working conditions and have been in settlement discussions with the company to win more significant improvements in their workplace.
