99 Pickets in action—Come join in!

TONIGHT! Support @ROC_NY and workers, and demand an end to retaliation by Capital Grille. 6pm, 155 E 42nd. #99PKTS

Dear Friends,

The Restaurant Opportunities Center of New York (ROC-NY) invites you and any other supporters to come out on Wednesday, May 16th, from 6-7 PM, for an action in support of Capital Grille workers that are part of the Dignity at Darden campaign.

Our most recent actions against retaliation have sent a strong message to the company and energized the workers. So, let’s keep building!

Dignity at Darden is a nationwide workplace justice campaign launched by the Restaurant Opportunities Center United (ROC-United) involving Capital Grille workers in five cities. Darden, which owns the Capital Grille, Red Lobster, Olive Garden, and more, is the largest full-service restaurant group in the world, and it claims to be a “leader” in the industry. However, workers have filed a class action lawsuit alleging wage theft and discrimination, and have sought to change other unfair working conditions.

For more information about the campaign, you can go to DignityAtDarden.org

Again, here are the details for the event: When: Wednesday,May 16th, 6-7 PM, Where:155 E 42nd Street (between 3rd Ave. and Lexington). In front of the Capital Grille, Chrysler Center

Your support is much appreciated, and will play an important role in the success of the campaign.

Please RSVP to john@rocyny.org
