The nature of work and families has changed significantly in the last two decades. Most families must now have two incomes to survive, but there are times when family life must come first. We need your help to win a case in the Fair Work Commission (FWC) to give you access to reduced hours while you have significant caring/parenting responsibilities.
The SDA is the Union for retail, fast food and warehouse workers, representing over 200,000 workers across the country for fair wages and improved working conditions. Since ALDI’s arrival in Australia in 2001, the SDA has engaged ALDI with an agenda to deliver better conditions for all employees. We’re working hard to make sure that employees get a fair go
The SDA has a large network of Health and Safety Representatives who help keep the health and safety of workers a priority. Health and Safety Reps (HSRs) are workers in shops, stores and warehouses who make the workplace safer for their fellow workers. They are elected by employees to ensure the highest standards of workplace health and safety are maintained
Retail, fast food & warehouse workers should always receive regular pay slips and keep them! Legally, you must receive a pay slip – either printed or electronic – within 1 working day of your pay day. It might not seem important to check your pay slips but they are detailed records of your pay. If you’re underpaid or your entitlements
It doesn’t matter how old you are, if you’re on check-out or drive-thru or whether you’re full-time or casual – you must be paid for all work done. Your employer is legally bound to pay you for all work done. It’s not optional – it’s the law! The SDA is helping more and more members who are being short-changed. In
