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.  


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


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!  


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
