Testimonials

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


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


I call the union for handling problems if I ever have any in my workplace, they always respond in a fast and timely manner to help resolve them!  


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