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


They are very informative and helpful. They keep you up to date with information which affects our work lives. They will support you with unfair dismissal or help you with any concern you have. Best o  


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.  


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!  


Urgent Notice: Woolworths Restructure

Go Back
  • 2nd August 2019

Woolworths Members,

If, following advice that your position was redundant, you were successful in your application for a new position, you will have been given a document to sign to indicate your acceptance of that position.

Firstly, it should be noted that this document is in the form of a Deed of Release (typically used in settlement of disputes) rather than an employment contract.  Secondly, the document contains some statements which, in the SDA’s view, are inconsistent with the circumstances and potentially misleading.

We have raised concerns about the document with the Company and they have undertaken to make a response.  In our view, until this response is received, employees should not sign the document.  By all means feel free to indicate that you wish to accept the position, but make it clear that you are awaiting advice on the contents of the document.

If you have any queries, please call the SDA on 1300 275 732.

Sincerely,
Peter O’Keeffe
SDA WA Secretary
