About the SDAEA 

Organisation type and coverage: a union of employees connected to the retail industry

Financial year: 1 July to 30 June

Date of registration: 14 May 1908, originally as The Shop Assistants and Warehouse Employees' Federation of Australia.

The terms of offices for office positions across the organisation are mostly 4 years.

There are 7 branches within the organisation. The national office and the 7 branches are reporting units for the purposes of financial reporting.

The affairs of the organisation are managed by a National Council, which consists of National Office Bearers and Delegates from the branches.

The organisation is also governed by a National Executive, while the branches are governed either by a Branch Council, Branch Conference or Committee of Management.

The organisation and each of its branches have their own sets of rules by which they are governed.

The organisation currently holds an exemption from having its elections conducted by the Australian Electoral Commission, but only in respect of the National Executive members. None of the other branches have any election exemptions.

For the current rules, information on rules, rule alterations and permits, please see the Fair Work Commission website. These matters are dealt with by the Fair Work Commission.
