A key role of the SDA is to train workplace leaders. The SDA Training Centre is a wing of the Shop, Distributive and Allied Employees’ Association, a not for profit organisation that represents people working in retail, fast food and allied industries.

Workplace Delegates Training

Workplace delegates are the vital link between the Union and the shop floor. Each year, hundreds of our workplace delegates receive specialised training to assist them in representing SDA members within the workplace.

All SDA Delegates are encouraged to attend training each year.
