Testimonials

The SDA is always working at getting the best and safest conditions for you and if something goes wrong they are there for you.  


Great service, great knowledge of workplace policies and procedures, free Legal advice, great value for money. These are just some of the benefits, why wouldn’t you want to join?  


Joining the union is the next best thing to having a guardian angel by your side and you can count on that!!  


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


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 2020
Less than 10 hours a week $ 4.10
10 hours or more but less than 20 hours per week $ 7.30
20 hours or more a week $ 10.20

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.
