Aldi gives all store staff a pay rise

Aldi is to give all 28,000 of its retail store workers a pay rise from 1 February.

The supermarket will pay all store assistants at least £10.10 an hour nationally and £11.55 for those inside the M25. It will also continue to offer paid breaks, which for the average store colleague is worth £750 annually.

The new rates exceed the Living Wage Foundation’s recommended real living wage rates of £9.90 an hour nationally and £11.05 an hour inside the M25.

Giles Hurley, chief executive of Aldi UK and Ireland, said: “The commitment and enthusiasm of our colleagues has driven our success over many years, particularly during the last 18 months.

“We want to ensure our colleagues are always fully rewarded for their amazing work. These new rates, together with the fact that we are the only supermarket to pay colleagues for breaks taken during their shifts, means we continue to offer the best pay in the supermarket sector.”

Aldi operates more than 950 stores throughout the UK and has recently committed to investing £1.3 billion in the country over the next two years. This means the retailer will be recruiting for more than 2,000 store-level positions next year.
