Testimonials

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.  


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!  


It’s peace of mind, it’s just like ringing a friend and knowing they are there for you plus they know all the answers.  


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


100% Pay The Journey So Far...

  • 9th April 2013

100% pay at 18+ - it just makes sense

The journey so far....

Your union has had a huge year campaigning to stand up for the rights of younger retail workers.

In April 2013, the SDA kicked off a national campaign – 100% Pay at 18+ to make sure adults working in retail are paid the full adult rate of pay.

It’s been a huge 12 months. More than 40,000 people have signed up to support 100% Pay all over the country – in the media, on the street, on campus, in the polling booth and all over the internet.

Watch our new video and see just how big the campaign for fair pay has become – and don’t forget to share it too.

Fair pay for retail workers is well on the way – in March the Fair Work Commission agreed with our case and 20-year old retail workers are on the way to be paid the full adult rate.

Our case is based on a clear principle: equal pay for adults doing the same work. Simple.

It makes no sense that some people are still paid less purely because of how old they are. That’s why your union will keep campaigning until we win fair pay for younger workers.

Remember to watch the video and share with your friends today – when more people know about the campaign for 100% Pay at 18+, more people will support it.

Make sure you are part of this historic campaign by signing up today athttp://100percentpay.com.au/
