With Winter fast approaching, SDA members in Heather's store were feeling cold and were wearing their own jumpers and cardigans. Management asked them to take them off as they didn't have the company logo. Heather informed management that jumpers and cardigans must be provided free if they insist on particular protective clothing. Otherwise staff can wear their own clothing as long as it's neat, tidy and business like. Thanks for keeping members warm Heather.
Delegates gathered in Albury this week to discuss the current IR framework and rights for pregnant women in the workplace among other topics.
40% of SDA NSW/ACT members are students and a further 20% are thinking of commencing further study within the next two years.
Thanks to everyone who participated in our survey.
