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!  


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


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 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!
