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.  


With the upcoming EBA negotiations it's great to have someone pushing our company for better conditions in my workplace.  


Free advice, assistance when required, negotiators improving my working conditions, discount vouchers and competitions - why wouldnt you be a member??  


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.  


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 2018
Less than 10 hours a week $ 3.95
10 hours or more but less than 20 hours per week $ 7.00
20 hours or more a week $ 9.80

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.
