Did you know?

The National Restaurant Association and Trump’s Department of Labor are trying to change the rules to allow restaurant owners to keep your tips.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Jan. 18, 2018 – PRLog 

Join us:
Whether you or someone you know works at a restaurant or in any other tip-based business, many will be affected by this change in policy.  Come to hear from national and local organizers and labor lawyers what we can do to stand together and make our voices heard.  There will also be restaurant owners present to help offer perspective on their outrage at the changes in policy, what their tip pooling practices are, and answer questions from tip-based workers that are present.

When:  Tuesday, Jan. 23, 2018 at 2:00 pm
Where:  IBEW Hall, 2001 Elm Hill Pike, Nashville TN 37210

Jordan Romanus of Restaurant Opportunities Centers (ROC) United (http://rocunited.org) will be present via Skype to discuss in more detail the implications of a change of this magnitude and help answer specific questions about how this will impact tip-based employees.  The mission of ROC United is to improve wages and working conditions for the nation’s restaurant workforce.  They are over 25,000 people who work in restaurants, over 300 high-road employers, and thousands of engaged consumers united for raising restaurant industry standards.

There are many chapters of ROC United across the United States, but there is no current chapter in Nashville TN.  This meeting will be the very first of its kind in Nashville.
