Wine Grape Council SA is thrilled to advise members of our commitment to work with the South Australian Wine Industry Association (SAWIA) to provide better services to SA wine grape growers.
With increasing demands placed on grape growers regarding Workplace Health & Safety and Industrial Relations, our goal is to make it easier for growers to access experts in the field.
As a member of WGCSA you have access to a free 1-hour telephone advisory service on any issue relating to the employment and safety of workers with SAWIA.
SAWIA is an experienced and trusted provider to the SA grape and wine industry. WGCSA members will have access to staff with extensive industry knowledge, Sarah Hills, Zvonko Levak and Henrik Wallgren, and can ask any question relating to Workplace Health and Safety or Industrial Relations over the phone. If the query develops beyond an hour, SAWIA consultancy rates apply.
Our new partnership with SAWIA will begin on December 4. If you need advice you can contact them on 8222 9277 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to this free advice, WGCSA members can also attend SAWIA seminars and workshops at SAWIA prices. To see the list of upcoming events in your area, visit the SAWIA website.
The service is available to SA wine grape growers who contribute $1/tonne to the SA Grape Growers Industry Fund (SAGGIF)*. The service is not available to those that have applied for a refund of their contribution.
*SAGGIF - The SA Grape Growers Industry Fund (SAGGIF) is the $1/tonne contribution paid by all SA growers who supply grapes for processing into wine. The fee is deducted from grape payments by the receiving winery. The fund is voluntary and wine grape growers can apply for a refund of their contribution – contact us for details.
