Testimonials

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!  


The SDA organisers are always there to help, If I have a question no matter how important or unimportant I think its is, I just call them and they help me...It's that simple!  


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
