Labor group vows to disrupt NRA’s Public Affairs Conference

A group of restaurant workers backed by ROC United, a union-supported labor group, has vowed to disrupt the National Restaurant Association’s Public Affairs Conference tomorrow morning in Washington, D.C.

According to ROC, at least 100 workers will confront restaurants attending the conference, which brings operators to the Capitol to meet with their elected officials. ROC said it would block major traffic arteries starting tomorrow morning at 8 a.m. specifically to complicate the transport of operators attending the event.

“It’s unfortunate that union-front groups have chosen to attack the hardworking men and women of our nation’s restaurant community-- small business owners that are growing the economy and creating jobs in communities across the country,”  the NRA said in a statement.
