Testimonials

With the upcoming EBA negotiations it's great to have someone pushing our company for better conditions in my workplace.  


I appreciate the unions work they are currently doing with the 18+ campaign. I'm doing the same job as an adult and in every other aspect at age 18 I can do all the adult things but I can't get paid a  


For us members the organisers are there to help us if we have problems to work through it with the management, then I know exactly what my rights are and that they are being protected  


When people join together and be part of the union we are helping each other have support and rules for work, I dont want to be the one standing alone!  


Answers to your common questions

How much does it cost?

SDA fees are modest and charged weekly through your pay. Fees are deducted according to the hours you work:

Membership Fees as at 1 January 2016
Less than 10 hours a week $ 3.95
10 hours or more but less than 20 hours per week $ 6.80
20 hours or more a week $ 9.50

All fees include GST

What if I have no hours?

If you are on payroll deductions and you work no hours in any particular week you do not pay fees for that week.

Are tax fees tax deductible?

Yes. Your Union fees are 100% tax deductible. You can claim the cost of your fees as a deduction.

What happens if I leave?

If you are on payroll deductions and you conclude your employment your fees will automatically cease.

If I change jobs, does my SDA membership follow me?

No. That’s why it’s important that members contact the SDA when they change jobs. It would be terrible if a problem arose in your new workplace and you do not have the protection of the SDA.
