REST Board

Our board is made up of both employer and employee representatives from the retail industry, as well as independent experts.

Speaking on your behalf

Four directors are nominated on behalf of employees by the Shop Distributive and Allied Employees Association (SDA). Four directors are nominated by and represent employers and employer associations. They currently comprise three major employers participating in REST, and the Australian National Retailers Association. This means that employees and employers are equally represented. Additionally, independent directors are appointed to the board to supplement the skills and experience of the board.
