Message From The Secretary

Welcome to the SDA – the union for retail, fast food and warehouse workers


The SDA is dedicated to:

  • Protecting your rights at work
  • Negotiating better pay and conditions for you
  • We are here if you need help at work or need answers to workplace questions
  • We make your workplace safer and help you through the complex WorkCover system if you are injured at work
  • We insure you for every hour you are not at work
  • We provide a wide range of benefits to members.

As a member of the SDA you are not alone.  You're joining a team with your workmates of over 50,000 SDA members in Victoria and over 200,000 across Australia.  You gain the experience of our Organisers, Information Officers, Industrial Officers, WorkCover Officers and our Equity Officer.

Together we work for better pay, better workplaces and safer workplaces.

You insure your house.

You insure your car.

Why wouldn’t you insure your job by being a member of the SDA.
