Testimonials

It's the protection of your job, it makes sense to be protected  


Being a member of the SDA is important because I'm not good at speaking up so I need assitance to help negotiate on my behalf.  


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  


I think the question should be this:  Why should somebody not join the SDA? That list would be short.  


SDA - The union for workers in retail, fast food and warehousing 

The SDA is a Union with over 200,000 members in retail, fast food and warehousing.  Our size gives us the resources to protect and advance the working conditions in the retail, fast food and distribution industries.
