Testimonials

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?  


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!  


You should join the SDA because the SDA can give help and guidance. It’s like insurance for your job. Peace of mind with the SDA.  


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  


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.
