ROC-NOLA is a local restaurant worker center founded in 2011. We build power and voice for restaurant workers through Policy change, organizing, and partnering with High Road Restaurants. ROC NOLA is a multi-racial, grassroots organization dedicated to improving working conditions and raising industry standards for all New Orleans area restaurant workers. ROC-NOLA builds power for low-wage restaurant workers through a tri-pronged strategy: 1) organizing workers against exploitation and discrimination in high-profile restaurant companies to win unpaid wages and workplace policy changes 2) conducting policy work to improve wages and working conditions industry-wide 3) partnering with responsible employers in a local Restaurant Industry Roundtable to promote the ‘high road’ to profitability, and helping members obtain living-wage jobs in the industry through training and leadership development.
