The Wine Grape Council of SA (WGCSA) is the peak body for South Australian grapegrowers
funded through a voluntary levy paid on all winegrapes sold from SA vineyards.
SAWIA Notice - Implications of employing casual workers
This SAWIA Notice outlines what you need to do about any existing casual employees you hire in the vineyard & what you need to do in future when hiring casual employees.
In a controversial decision the Full Federal Court has held that a casual employee employed by a labour hire company in the mining industry in fact is not a casual employee, but a permanent employee and therefore entitled to paid annual leave.
2018 Annual General Meeting
The 2018 Wine Grape Council of South Australia Annual General Meeting was held on October 18. It was great to have many members in attendance to hear Chair Heather Webster’s report on the past 12 months.
Growers from across the state provide valuable insights for the future
Earlier this month we held our inaugural Grower focus event at the beautiful Strathalbyn Racecourse. The day brought together growers from across the state to share their thoughts on the priorities of WGCSA for the coming 12 months.
Each of the WGCSA regional councillors were tasked with nominating impressive, influential and forward-thinking growers to attend the event and share their thoughts.
