About the Restaurant Opportunities Center (ROC)

The Restaurant Opportunities Center is a labor union front group disguised as a restaurant industry employment center and watchdog. ROC regularly issues factually flawed reports, files ridiculous lawsuits, and leads protests that harm many of the restaurant employees they claim to represent, all in an effort to attack and harass non-unionized restaurants. ROC’s tactics have been compared to mob-style shakedowns, often employing intimidation and outright extortion in an effort to force restaurants into submission.

Consider just a few facts:

Given ROC’s checkered past, its hidden agendas, and its illegitimate or even illegal tactics that can harm the very same employees it claims to protect, ROC has no credibility to speak on behalf of restaurant industry employees.
