Aldi gives warehouse workers a new year pay rise

Aldi will be increasing pay rates for around 7,000 warehouse workers by up to 20% from 1 February.

The supermarket said most distribution centre roles are for warehouse selectors who will see their pay rise to a new minimum rate of £13.18 an hour from £11.48 in January 2022.

Following two pay increases for hourly-paid warehouse workers in 2022, this further rise means staff will be paid up to 20% more than at this time last year.

The move follows Aldi’s recent pay review for store assistants which came into effect this month.

Giles Hurley, chief executive  of Aldi UK and Ireland, said: “Just as we promise our customers that we will do all we can to support them, we are equally committed to supporting our amazing Aldi colleagues – as we remain the highest-paying supermarket in the UK.

“This announcement recognises the hard work and contribution our colleagues make in serving communities across the country and it’s down to them that we are able to ensure our customers can access fresh affordable food, every single day.”

In addition to pay increases, Aldi has confirmed in its latest pay review that it will introduce up to two days paid leave per cycle of fertility treatment for staff. It is also the only supermarket to offer paid breaks, which it says is worth an additional £871 a year for the average store team member.

The supermarket has more than 990 stores and 11 regional distribution centres across the UK.
