ROC-NY works to build power and win justice among restaurant workers who face exploitative and abusive workplaces. Through a combination of worker organizing and leadership, litigation, and public pressure, ROC-NY has won back wages and discrimination claims for restaurant workers across the City in addition to other important workplace policy changes that directly improve conditions.

Our Workplace Justice Committee is made up of members who provide support for our organizing work and help educate other workers about the need to take collective action in order to change conditions in the restaurant industry. Members learn organizing skills and gain knowledge about labor law. The Workplace Justice Committee is an opportunity for restaurant workers to play a vital role in building a vibrant workers’ movement for social change.
