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?  


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.  


It's the protection of your job, it makes sense to be protected  


SDA Delivers fair pay for 20 year olds

Go Back
  • 17th April 2014

I’m pleased to report that your union has had a big win for younger workers in the 100% Pay at 18+ campaign.

The Fair Work Commission has backed our claim, ruling that the General Retail Industry Award should be changed to ensure that 20-year-olds are paid full adult rates.

100% Pay for 20-year-old workers will be phased in from July 1 this year, bringing them in line with other adult workers by 2015.

We couldn’t have done this without the thousands of people working together to support the campaign all around Western Australia. Thank you to everyone who has been involved so far.

I’m also pleased to report that the campaign has passed more than 40,000 supporters who have signed up on the campaign website. It’s a huge achievement - we’re showing Australia that people care about paying younger workers fairly.

You might be wondering what happens now.

We’ve succeeded in stage one, but we still need to fight for 100% pay for 18 and 19 year olds workers too. To do that, we need to keep up our efforts.

If you haven’t joined the campaign yet, sign up today at http://100percentpay.com.au/. If we show support is growing, the more likely we will achieve fair pay for 18-19 year olds. 

This is a huge win for union members in Western Australian – congratulations and thank you for your support.

Thank you for your continued support.

Joe Bullock WA Branch Secretary
