The SDA, the union for workers in retail, fast food and warehousing has launched a major national campaign ‘No One Deserves a Serve’ to stop the abuse and violence towards retail and fast food workers by customers this Christmas.

The massive campaign includes television, radio, digital and outdoor advertising and responds to SDA research involving 6,000 retail and fast food workers which found that over 85% of them had experienced abuse from customers at work.

Survey results highlight abuse towards retail and fast food workers is epidemic

 Enough is enough. Too many retail and fast food workers are being abused at work from swearing and spitting to threatening and physical violence.

From December 2016 to February 2017, the SDA conducted an online survey of retail and fast food workers and received an overwhelming response. Thousands of SDA members and non-members across Australia face abuse and violence at work and it’s time that changed.
