New York, NY — As a former client of FitzGibbon Media, ROC United is shocked and dismayed by the news that has emerged about the firm’s abrupt closure. Since restaurant workers experience the highest rates of sexual harassment of any industry, we are sadly familiar with the impact that gender-based violence has on women in the workplace, and continue to hold in high esteem the work of the firm’s former staff to disseminate our research on this very issue. We extend our solidarity to all the former FitzGibbon staff deeply affected by this situation.


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 close to 18,000 worker-members across over 30 cities in the US, winning 15 worker-led campaigns, totaling $8 million in stolen tips and wages.
