Restaurant Opportunities Center of Philadelphia





Philly-ROC is a workers' center dedicated to making change in the restaurant industry by empowering workers to take collective action to improve their own working conditions.

Despite employing more than 10 million workers and producing more than $1.7 trillion in revenue each year, the restaurant industry has 7 out of the 10 lowesting paying jobs in America.

ROC is the only national restaurant workers’ organization in the United States.
ROC was founded in NYC in September 2001 by restaurant workers who were displaced as a result of the 9/11 tragedy. On September 11, 73 restaurant workers lost their lives. The survivors went on to form ROC and provde a vehicle for restaurant workers to lift their collective voice and demand justice at work.

ROC is a member-led organization that engages in direct action workplace justice campaigns, participatory research & policy, and leader development to build a strong worker led movement.
